Detective Richard Wistocki receives
2017 CARE Award from National Exchange Club
The CARE award is awarded annually to an individual recognized for unselfish acts of service and kindness who best represent the mission of the Exchange Club – to rid society of child abuse and domestic violence.
"This past year the National Exchange Club has partnered with Rich to get the Keeping Kids Safe online program to all of its Club’s nationwide. The video, recorded and produced by NCTV17 is now available to all of the nation's 650 Exchange Clubs, which will be empowered to share the information with their communities. According to Scot Warren, another member of our Club and the Region 3 Vice President serving on the National Board, who helped with this partnership said, “Det. Wistocki is one of the foremost authorities on internet crimes and prevention. It has been exciting and rewarding to work with him on this project, which brings his training and expertise to families across the country. I believe it’s going to make a tremendous impact”.
Naperville Police Chief Robert Marshall added, "We're fortunate in Naperville to have the resources and community partnerships necessary to bring this message to our families and teach parents how to keep their kids safe online. Our police department is extremely grateful for this partnership and opportunity to reach even more families with this training.'
Rich will also be a keynote speaker this year at our National Convention in July.
