MANNING, SC POLICE DEPARTMENT LAUNCHES “I PROMISE” INITIATIVE
In light of the difficulties our state and nation are currently facing after the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis, the Manning, SC Police Department is launching the “I Promise” Initiative – a four-part pledge that officers are taking as a department to show their commitment to protect and serve all citizens with dignity, respect, and fairness.
The initiative was created by Jeff Black, a former Manning resident, and Julia A. Nelson, the current Mayor of Manning. Black and Nelson grew up together, starting out at Manning Primary School in 1970. Fifty years later, their friendship remains strong and both want to demonstrate that small steps like this one can add up to big change.
Under the leadership of Keith Grice, Manning Police Chief, officers will take the “I Promise” pledge at the Billie S. Fleming Protective Services Complex (Manning Police and Fire Departments), 42 West Boyce Street, this Thursday, June 4 at 1:00 pm. The media is invited to this brief ceremony entitled, “Promise & Prayer,” including two local pastors who will pray for our community, state, and nation. Social distancing will be practiced.
A website is in development - promise4peace.org - so that law enforcement agencies around the state and nation can access the “I Promise” logo and pledge, in hopes that others will host their own renewal ceremony during this pivotal time in our nation’s history.
The health and well-being of the residents, visitors and staff is our top priority. We are actively monitoring updates regarding the Coronavirus (COVID-19) and are following precautions and guidelines provided by the CDC and Federal, State and local officials. To help minimalize the exposure of COVID-19, the City of Manning would like to encourage all customers to pay your water bill online or leave your payment in our night deposit box (No cash payments please).
To that end, complete your online payment by going to our website, www.cityofmanning.org , click on the blue tab that says “make a utility payment”. Enter your account number from your paper bill and follow the prompts. Payments made after 5 pm will be posted the next business day. Again, you may also drop your payment in our night deposit box, located on the side of our building on the N. Mill Street side.
We will NOT suspend or disconnect water services for nonpayment during the current declared state of emergency. This is not to provide free services but rather accommodate delayed payments by individuals impacted by the COVID-19 state of emergency.
