Earlier in the month, the Community Idea Stations (CIS) in Richmond was presented with the FBI Richmond Division’s 2010 Director’s Community Leadership Award (DCLA).
One of the criteria for awarding the DCLA is the support of educational initiatives within the community; and the CIS has been a strong supporter of law enforcement and the FBI’s Safe Online Surfing (FBI-SOS) program for the past several years. With the support of the Richmond Division of the FBI and the drive of the CIS, a single-page FBI-SOS handout was developed and many joint presentations have been conducted throughout the area.
This partnership between the Richmond Division of the FBI and the CIS was designed to utilize both organizations resources to facilitate the FBI-SOS program in a way that would ultimately migrate across the nation, resulting in like partnerships with other FBI offices and Public Broadcasting Studios.
The Richmond Division looks forward to continuing their partnership with CIS in support of the FBI-SOS program and future endeavors of mutual interest. Inquiries of CIS’ support and ideas for advancement of this program may be directed to Ms. Cynthia Charlton-Matejka at 804/560-8139.
