    You can give your Thanksgiving toast in a dozen different languages and liquids and addressed, whatever your faith, to “the livin’ Gawd that made you,” as Rudyard Kipling put it.

Police Chief Michael Morris brought the program into the department when he took over command in 2011, amid a steep increase in crime in the township that coincided with the nationwide economic downturn and a decrease in staffing within the department due to budget constraints.
