State Rep. Peter MacGregor accepts his award from Kathy Pelleran, state director of Fight Crime: Invest in Kids Michigan at the state Capitol.

State Rep. Peter MacGregor was recently honored with the 2011 Crime Fighter Award from the Michigan chapter of Fight Crime: Invest in Kids.

Fight Crime: Invest in Kids is a statewide crime prevention organization led by Michigan police chiefs, sheriffs, prosecutors and crime survivors.

The organization cited MacGregor’s role on the House Appropriations subcommittee on Community Health in leading the effort to certify funding for voluntary home visiting and parent-education programs aimed to improve family functioning.

“Investing in programs that keep our children safe is very important to our state’s success, and I appreciate the recognition for my efforts, but the credit truly belongs with the organization,” said MacGregor, R-Rockford.” Through my work on the Appropriations Committee, I interact with many organizations and have been extremely impressed by the work of Fight Crime: Invest in Kids in our local communities.”

MacGregor was honored during a May 23 awards presentation at the state Capitol.
