The evening of February 20 was set aside at the American Legion Post in Cedar Springs as a time to honor the First Responders of the community. A wonderful Swiss steak meal was provided for our local heroes for their sacrifices, contributions and dedication to public service.

Grand Rapids Community College donated one Decatur Genisis II radar unit to the Sand Lake Police Department on Friday, October 14. George Zeeff, Professor/Department Head of Criminal Justice at GRCC represented GRCC in making this donation.
Also present was Police Academy Student Intern Jerry Seevers. Jerry and two other academy students completed 90 hour internships with the Sand Lake Police Department this year.
The Sand Lake Police Department cannot wait to bring the new unit into service, according to Sand Lake Chief of Police Ken Williams. “The new radar features Ka band frequency, which broadcasts farther and is more reliable than the previous K band system,” said Williams.
The new system features two antennas, allowing officers to track vehicles approaching from the front of the car as well as the rear of the car, while sitting stationary or while moving. The old system had only one antenna, which allowed officers to monitor vehicles in front of the car while stationary and had limited use while moving.
