The children of one Hattiesburg apartment complex who've seen their share of crime recently may feel a bit safer now, thanks to a fun, family event hosted in their honor. Youngsters and their parents at Plantation Place Apartments were treated to a block party Saturday afternoon.
Metro Crimestoppers and Hattiesburg Police hosted the event.
Parents were given fingerprint ID kits to help find lost children, while the kids were given pizza and other gifts from police officers.
"We want the people in this community to know that we care," said Diane James, coordinator for Metro Crimestoppers. "And we want to get kids educated about crime, what crime is and we want them to be safe in their neighborhood," she said.
"I do appreciate what Crimestoppers does for the neighborhoods and for the community and for the City of Hattiesburg," said Fay Berry, a Crimestoppers volunteer who helped with the block party.
James says she hopes to host other block parties at other apartment complexes soon.
