Dear editor,

One of the most important components of successful crime prevention is education, so with that in mind, the City of Selma Police Department is once again soliciting the community’s support for the 5th Annual School Assistance Drive (Police Assisting with School Supplies) P.A.S.S.

We are requesting the participation of citizens, business, government and faith-based groups in an effort to equip the children of our community with the essentials to embark on a successful school year.
