The Safe Streets Coalition in partnership with the Topeka Police Department, Shawnee County Sheriff's Office, Crime Stoppers, and Topeka area pawn shops are promoting a program to deter theft of property and to help return property to the owner if it's stolen. Law enforcement reports that only one percent of all items in the property room are marked. The League has three invisible identification markers for members to use and then pass on to other members. These pens were available at the June Tuesday Topics meeting with the information on how to use them. We plan to have this information available at future Tuesday Topics meetings.

On a tight schedule Bob checks his watch as he begins. Bob shares his experiences being involved with the 2008 election campaign.
