The Lincoln Park Police Department, the Lincoln Park Neighborhood Watch Program, and the Lincoln Park Chamber of Commerce are sponsoring a special session at Fantasyland, the annual Christmas display put on by the Chamber of Commerce.
You will be able to enjoy all the sights and sounds of Christmas that Fantasyland always has to offer, including Santa and Mrs. Claus, but with an added bonus – a visit with one of Lincoln Park Police Department’s Canine Officers!
Fantasyland Admission is $1.00 per person. Photos with Santa and the Canine Officer are $3.00 each, or two for $5.00. You are allowed to take your own photos, if you prefer.

Neighborhood watch programs can help to build unity within a block, or even an entire city, as well as help to prevent crime. There are hundreds of neighborhood watch or similar programs across the state, dozens of which are in southern Wayne County.
Some of those watch programs are city-wide, while others are simply a single block within the the community. Two of the more successful programs in he region are in Dearborn Heights and Lincoln Park, while a fledgling program in Allen Park struggles to get underway.
Watch programs used to exist in nearly every community Downriver, but as property values and tax revenues have dropped, so have resources that were spent on community policing. Both Lincoln Park and Dearborn Heights have been using Community Development Block Grant money to fund the programs. Dearborn Heights calls its program the Community Awareness program in the city, but also has some civic associations in certain neighborhoods.

Officers of the Lincoln Park Police Department along with program volunteers will be going throughout the city in the coming weeks in an effort to increase citizen’s awareness of the Lincoln Park Neighborhood Watch Program. The purpose of the door to door canvassing is to explain what the Neighborhood Watch Program is as well to encourage residents to join. The officers or volunteers will have applications with them, which can be filled out at the time of the door to door canvassing or can be returned at a later date. This is a valuable organization, which can benefit all of our residents by helping keep our community safe, so please take the time to consider joining.
