The North Judson Town Council members heard some future event suggestions from Town Marshal Kelly Fisher during their meeting last week.

Fisher said they’re considering a “Canine Mud Run” as a potential summertime fundraiser. She said it would be like any other mud run but they would invite individuals to bring their dogs along.

She said the police department plans to team up with the park board to have community-centered events every month. She suggested box car races, basketball and softball games as other potentials.

Fisher said these types of events could strengthen the connection between the police force and the community.

The Town Marshal said, “We’d like to get to the point where the kids will be like ‘okay what’s next month?’ just to keep them out of trouble and to have something to look forward to.” She said they want to keep kids from saying ‘oh there’s the police’ in a negative way. Fisher explained that they’d rather have them say ‘Oh there’s the police, what can we talk about?’

She said they’re already working on building trust with students in the North Judson by going into the schools on a regular basis.
