Being on the NW Police Reform Panel gave me the chance to ask NW Chief Doss how the community could help with some of the newer challenges with youths, especially mental health. On my very first meeting of the NW American Legion Auxiliary the president asked for community ideas. That’s when the passionate drive to create 33 crisis/trunk boxes for the NWPD started -small boxes with variety of toys (stuffed, dolls, cars and fidgets). Thank you to ALL the groups/members including Auxiliary and Sons of the NW American Legion Post 1796 for their donations, time and drive. Special thanks to Auxiliary President Lisa Van Nostrand, Commander Pifer and his wife Maria, and Sons member, Bob McCormick. And thank you to NWPD Chief Doss, and his team for the continued discussions.
