Keeping Atlantic City Safe

On Thursday, June 25, James Howard performed his routine morning cleaning duties on the Atlantic City Boardwalk, when he witnessed a purse snatching.

In that moment, Howard, a General Maintenance employee, shouted at the suspect and then went to help the woman. At that time, he also radioed his crew and supervisor.

Lehigh Valley Added to Cvent

Cvent has created a separate region for Lehigh Valley on their website dedicated to event and meeting planners. The change signals big things for the area.
