Sergeant Griffin Awarded Certificate of Appreciation by DEMA

Sergeant Jennifer Griffin of the Delaware State Police (DSP) is awarded a Certificate of Appreciation from the Delaware Emergency Management Agency by Director James E. Turner III, for her work with DEMA and the DE Citizen Corps.  Sergeant Griffin spearheaded a project to get the Disaster Preparedness DVD/Video into schools across the State of Delaware by using the DSP School Resource Officers. The video can also be used by teachers and parents and can be viewed by all on the school and the Delaware Citizen Corps websites.  The project was highlighted by a Press Conference at the CR Senior High School on Sep 23. Also pictured are Capt Glen Dixon DSP and Bob George Citizen Corps Program Manager. 
The next project will be to have the video converted into Spanish, include Closed Captions, and to get it into the Special Needs Community.
