Numbers Brewing Company Observing National Police Week

LISBON, Ohio – Numbers Brewing Company is celebrating National Police Week by honoring area law enforcement agencies and donating a portion of daily sales toward their departments’ needs.

The observance kicked off Tuesday by hosting the Hancock County (W.Va.) Sheriff’s Department; followed Wednesday with Leetonia Police Department; Thursday, Columbiana Police K-9s; Friday, Salem Police K-9s; and Saturday Lisbon Police Department K-9 unit.

Food and drink specials, raffles, music and T-shirt sales are being offered each day this week during the celebration. According to Randy Schneider, Numbers marketing and promotions director, observing Police Week at the establishment began three years ago.

“We not only wanted to give back to our area police departments each day but wanted to make it more of a community relations event as well. So, we decided to host a different police department each day, giving back 10% of our sales each day to that department,” Schneider said.

Schneider, a sergeant with the Leetonia Police Department, said he understands the importance of community relations events.

“Salem Police K-9 Officer Michael Garber and I have worked well together in our areas, forming community relations projects and fundraisers to help humanize the badge,” he said. “[This allows] citizens to get to know officers in a more laid back atmosphere outside of seeing them on traffic stops or incidents.”

Officer Garber will be on hand at 5 p.m. Friday, while Lisbon police Chief Michael Abraham will be available at 6 p.m. on Saturday to discuss their respective programs.
