The Kiwanis Club meets each Monday at noon, at the Civic Center in Chickasaw.
On August 22, 2011 the Chickasaw Kiwanis has announced the current "Officer Of The Quarter" recipient: Tommy McDuffie on the police force. Tommy is our juvenile officer and recently broke up a group of youth breaking into homes on 11th and 12th Avenues.
They were taking the items to a Prichard man who paid them and then pawned the stolen items. Through Tommy's thorough follow-up, they were able to catch the kids and their Prichard contact. The Kiwanis feels strongly about their program to reward police and fire officials and maintain a master plaque at City Hall to list the names of these talented men and women. Police Chief Mike Reynolds and President Ervin Daily presented the award.
On February 14, 2011, the Kiwanis Club honors the newest addition to the Kiwanis Police and Fireman award, Officer Marcus Paige. Officer Paige had noticed two men hauling a large television in the back of their vehicle. When he stopped and questioned them, they became very agitated and sped away with Paige in pursuit. He singlehandedly caught them in Alabama Village and cuffed one, but the other darted behind the houses. ID on the second man has been released to all local police. A fine job by Officer Paige and a clear warning to other criminals looking to operate in Chickasaw.
