Craig briefs: CPD to train retailers on shoplifting prevention

Craig Police Department will host a shoplifting and loss prevention class May 8 in response to a high rate of theft from retail stores in the area recently.

“This class is designed to provide retail employees, supervisors and managers some tools to prevent shoplifting and internal theft in retail stores,” according to a statement released by Craig Police Department.

Officer Grant Laehr will teach the course because before his work in law enforcement, he had 12 years of experience in retail sales.

The class is free, but those interested need to register with Dixie Beck at 970-826-2371.

Sen. Udall promotes fire department grants

U.S. Sen. Mark Udall, D-Colo., encourages Colorado’s fire departments to apply for competitive grants to help them meet their firefighting and emergency response needs and better protect Colorado communities, according to a release from the senator’s office.

Federal Emergency Management Agency’s Assistance to Firefighters Grant program gives Colorado fire departments the chance to compete for a portion of $32 million to more effectively protect communities from the threat of fire. This Fire Prevention and Safety Grant funds projects that reach high-risk populations and that decrease rates of injuries and deaths caused by fires.

To request a letter of support, fire departments should call Udall’s office nearest them. Call Mike Saccone at 202-224-4334.
