Community Policing in the Town of Lloyd (Aired on October 8 and 9, 2016)

Community Policing in the Town of Lloyd (Aired on October 8 and 9, 2016)

Jonah Triebwasser and RadioRotary Producer Kathy Kruger interview Police Chief Daniel Waage of the Town of Lloyd in Ulster County about his program of community policing. Community policing is a law-enforcement philosophy that involves the systematic use of community partnerships to address proactively the conditions that give rise to crime, social disorder, or fear of police. Chief Waage has followed this philosophy from the 2012 start of his work in Lloyd, focusing especially on helping children (and their parents) and senior citizens. The Lloyd Police, working on their own time, produce or participate in fundraising events for local needs. Chief Waage has also instituted programs such as Project CARE, which checks daily on the status of enrolled senior citizens. Educational outreach is provided through classes in such topics as active shooter response training and forums and classes dealing with narcotics abuse. Community involvement includes a Lloyd police sergeant who is a member of Highland Rotary.

Faith House to Help Pregnant Girls (Aired on April 16 & 17, 2016)

Faith House

Faith House

Crystal Snow-Hebel is one of the co-founders of Faith House (Linda Arzu is the other), a proposed maternity home for 18- to 24-year old girls and their newborn children. This would be a refuge for girls who otherwise would be homeless, in abusive relationships, or living in poverty. The idea is to provide for spiritual and emotional needs in a real family environment. Many volunteers are already working on this project, which is still in a fundraising stage. In addition to providing parenting skills, there would also be prenatal care and skills and educational development for when the girl and her child re-enters society.

Grace Smith Domestic-Violence Assistance House (Aired on February 21 and 22, 2015)

Michele Polluck-Rich

Michele Polluck-Rich

Co-host Jonah Triebwasser and producer Kathy Kruger interview Michele Polluck-Rich, Executive Director at Grace Smith House, the principal organization in Dutchess County for aid to victims of domestic abuse. Victims of either sex can be helped; the hotline is (845) 471-3033. About 90% of the abused are women, who can be removed from their domestic situation to one of two secretly located residences for stays of 90 days. There are also arrangements for men. The clients are provided with a family advocate to help get through the legal arrangements necessary for orders of protection or for finding permanent housing. Not all abuse is physical—victims of psychological or financial abuse can also get help. Services are free and confidential. Since one in three of adolescents have been affected by partner violence, Grace Smith House supports an important outreach program of teenagers working with other teenagers, The Peace Group. Evening support groups meet weekly as well.

RI Convention in Sydney, Australia, Part 2 (Aired on July 5 & 6, 2014)

2014 RI Convention - Sydney

2014 RI Convention – Sydney

Past Rotary International President Bill Boyd tells Radio Rotary Co-Host Jonah Triebwasser about WASRAG, the Water and Sanitation Rotary Action Group. Securing an adequate supply of drinkable water is one of six Rotary areas of focus that affects all the rest—fighting disease, saving mothers and children, growing local economies, promoting peace (wars have been fought over water), even literacy, since the time that young girls need to spend fetching water, often from miles away, keeps them out of school. PP Boyd noted that although sanitation is not glamorous, it is one of the easies ways for Rotarians to do good in the world—by providing latrines. In other interviews, Kerry Kornhauser describes the organization Women in Rotary and her work with Violence Free Families; Mark McNally discusses the Thousand Smiles Foundation, now in its 29th year of doing surgery to correct cleft lips an palates and also improving dental hygiene; while John Sweet and his group provides vaccinations against cervical cancer in Papua New Guinea; and Carolyn Kruger tells about how to use “LifeStraw,” a simple water filter for individual or family use.
