Crime Prevention Awards recognize organizations helping to keep communities safer

MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) – Keeping our communities safe and making a difference was the focus of Thursday’s Crime Prevention Awards.

One honoree was an 18-year-old man named Randle Chavis Harrison.

He works with the organization safe and sound. But he is also a DJ who puts on a show at Milwaukee’s Juneteenth Day celebration.

Since he started working at Juneteenth Day, Milwaukee Police say there’s been virtually no arrests at the celebration.

“Helping the youth is the best thing you can do because some people think they’re bad or have nothing to do. So if you give them something to do, they have something to do,” Harrison said.

Other honorees included members of the Milwaukee Police Department and other area organizations.
