This energetic community keeps its citizens busy with civic and cultural activities, which has to help this town of around 15,000 residents maintain its stellar safety record. There are a number of safety initiatives embraced by the Forks community, including awareness campaigns like one to prevent kitchen fires that was the focus of an October Fire Prevention Week program. In addition, the Forks Township Police Department offers a variety of ways to engage with the community and involve citizens in their own protection, most notably the Citizen’s Police Academy and upcoming Volunteers in Police Services, which is aimed at reducing violence and preventing substance abuse among the townships youth.
