Stopping crime starts with a good working relationship between a community and it's police department according to Assumption Chief of Police Brian Wade. Wade says the Assumption Police Department has partnered with several organizations in town to help identify potential problems in the town, and how they can be solved before becoming an issue.
Wade appeared as a guest on the Newstalk WTIM Morning Show's Hometown Tour live from Assumption City Hall, and highlighted some of the work the department is doing to help put an early stop to crime.
The Police-Community relationship has been strained in many communities across the country. Wade says the police department in Assumption actively works with the community to help foster a positive relationship.
Wade also credited the community's help in keeping Assumption a safe community.
