The Sacred Heart Men's Club meeting on January 10, 2017 was attended by almost 80 members and guests.  A barbeque dinner was served by Chef Johnna's.  After dinner, Program Director Buddy Dixon introduced HSV Chief of Police Ricky Middleton who discussed safety in the Village.  He pointed out that HSV was safer than any of the similar sized cities in the area.  He also commented on the differance in policing in HSV, in that many of the calls they get for help (can't open doors, barking dogs, etc.) don't get answered in bigger cities but they are here.  He took several questions about gun carry laws and gate security.  See the meeting minutes posted on the website for more details on the meeting.
