The Police and Fire departments will honor select retirees during the virtual Public Safety Black History Month Celebration on Sunday, Feb. 21 at 6 p.m.  The program can be watched on WSTV Digital Media, on the city’s YouTube channel and on the city website.

The celebration will also honor the late Otis Belton Sr. who was one of the city’s earliest African American police officers. His son, retired Police Captain Otis Belton Jr., will tell about his father’s career in law enforcement.

The celebration usually includes the winners of the Recreation Department’s annual Black History Month coloring and essay contests. Because of the pandemic, Recreation did not hold contests this year. Instead, for this year’s program it compiled a video of young people discussing what Black History Month means to them.

WSTV Digital Media can be watched on channel 13 on Spectrum or channel 99 on AT&T Uverse. To watch online, go to CityofWS.org and select the clapboard icon under the search box. There will be an option to watch live either through the website or YouTube.
