Liberty Belles and Boys wanted to make Ada a safe community

So they held an ice cream social and donated $500 to the police department

Ada 4-H club, Liberty Belles and Boys, wanted to make Ada a safe community – so they did something about it.

Last summer the club held an ice cream social fundraiser. It generated $500 and the proceeds were recently donated to the Ada police department for surveillance equipment for the  department’s S.A.F.E.R. program.

Project S.A.F.E.R. (Seeking Aid From Every Resident) is Ada's own community policing initiative started in January of 2002. It is a winner of the 2003 Ohio Crime Prevention's Community Policing Strategy Award, aimed at nurturing the relationship with the community.

Through the S.A.F.E.R. Program the police department continually reminds residents of their role in assisting the Ada Police Department to keep Ada a safer community.
