Snow Hill PD launching two community outreach programs this Fall


The Snow Hill Police Department is gearing up to launch two programs aimed at partnering with the community. It’s all based on feedback from the so-called Chief’s Advisory Board. That’s a group of Snow Hill citizens that bring community issues to the Police Chief’s attention and provide suggestions.

The first program they are working is a “Check on a Vet” program. Officers will be checking on and meeting with veterans in the community. They say following such a long period of being shut-in due to the pandemic, they want to make sure all of their needs are being met.

Chief Andy McGee says, “Our veterans have sacrificed so much, it’s incumbent upon us to make sure they get the full support of the community . . . if that means cutting their grass, or just making sure they have, you know, whatever they need available to them, we can certainly do that.”

The second program they are working on it a prescription delivery partnership with Apple Drugs. A couple of days a week officers will deliver prescriptions to those 60 and older who aren’t able to get them on their own.

Chief Andy McGee tells us they hope to have both programs up and running by October 1st.

If you know of someone who may benefit from either program, you can reach out via their Facebook page by clicking here or call 410-632-2444.
