I keep hearing the voice of The Price Is Right’s Bob Barker shouting, “you’ve won a new car!” — ever since Police Chief Lee sent a note around announcing that the City of Kent is one of only five Police Departments statewide that will be receiving a new Police Cruiser as a reward for our participation in the statewide Click it or Ticket and Drive Sober safety campaigns.
Previously our participation in the campaign landed us a laser radar gun (which it did again for us this year) but apparently our lucky number came up and we’re also getting the grand prize of a new Police Cruiser.
Chief Lee said that she’ll be given the keys to the new car as part of the awards ceremony that is scheduled before the Indians game at Progressive Field on August 28th. Here’s a link to more details from Chief Lee.
