The Crime Prevention Association of Michigan is proud to announce that Ian Gibson, Dean of Students at Crossroads, has been chosen as this year's recipient for the Outstanding Crime Prevention Practitioner Officer Award. The Crime Prevention Association of Michigan Award is presented annually to honor its members and persons who have demonstrated an outstanding contribution to the citizens of Michigan in the field of crime prevention.
Mr. Gibson has coordinated and led a group called KOPS, which stands for: Kids and Officers Partnering in Schools. The KOPS program began at Crossroads in 2012-2013 school years. The purpose of the group is to bridge the gap with at-risk youth and law enforcement. Also involved in leading the groups with Mr. Gibson are Officer Jeff "Gus" Augustin from Kentwood Police Department and Deputy Tom McCutcheon of Kent County Sheriff Department. Congratulations to Mr. Gibson, the officers and the students for a wonderful program.
