City Service Group Behind Peru’s Pro-Police Signs

Posted by wlpo on August 24, 2016

If you’ve driven through Peru recently, you’ve likely noticed signs around the city that say “We Support Our Police.” They’re the latest product of a group that looks to make a positive impact in the city.

The Peru Citizens Service Organization had the idea for the signs at a meeting last month. Jason Edgcomb is the group’s Vice-President, and he says recent events involving violence and the police nationally led to what he said was a “spur-of-the-moment” decision.

The Peru CSO typically makes similar contributions to the city. Edgcomb says they were responsible for the flags downtown which they continue to maintain, as well as putting up Christmas decorations and a number of other contributions.

If you would like a sign, more should be available soon at the Peru Police Department.
