2017 LAKEVILLE COPS & COATS CAMPAIGN! The Lakeville Police Department has launched our 2017 Cops & Coats initiative aimed at gathering new and gently used jackets and coats to benefit 360 Communities® Lewis House shelter for victims of domestic abuse. Collection bins for donated coats and jackets will be located again this year at the Lakeville Police Department, City Hall, and the Water Treatment Facility. Additionally, CrossRoads Church, Lakeville and Inver Grove Heights campuses, and Evergreen Church, Lakeville, are hosting collection bins. Lakeville’s Cops & Coats program was organized by Deputy Chief John Kornmann following a visit to the Lewis House. Realizing that many domestic abuse calls require victims to leave their homes without time to pack even a jacket, he saw an opportunity to assist those women and children in need, “A warm coat when a person arrives at the shelter is a great way to show support when needed most. It can be on of the first things that help a victim of domestic violence know others are there to help and that leaving, sometimes with literally nothing is the best decision.” Collection of coats has begun and distribution to the Lewis House shelter will be occurring as donations are received.
