Rich Coleman, a Certified Crime Prevention Practitioner, is helping the PTC lead the fight against violence and indecency in both television and video games in the Southeast Michigan community and beyond. Founder and leader of the "Washtenaw Knights", a crime and drug prevention musical group formed in 1991, Coleman's dedication to making the world a safer place for our children has certainly not gone unrecognized. In October 2000, the Crime Prevention Association of Michigan selected him as the "Outstanding Crime Prevention Practitioner of the Year. Additionally, the FBI awarded Coleman with the Director's Community Leadership Award in 2002.
Educated at Eastern Michigan University of Interdisciplinary Technology, Coleman has served on the Pittsfield Township Department of Public Safety for 12 years as Public Safety Coordinator, responsible for crime, fire prevention and media relations. In August 2001, Coleman launched "Prevention Corner", a television program that airs in more than a million households on Ann Arbor's Community Access Television. The program focuses on violence, substance abuse prevention, parenting for prevention and the impact of negative music and video games on youth.
Coleman and his PTC chapter played a crucial role in getting state representatives to pass legislation protecting children from violent video games.
Rich Coleman is very passionate about his role as a PTC Chapter Director saying: "The broadcast airways belong to us, the citizens of this community and the utterances of blatantly profane words do not represent our community values ….We must stop this proliferation of profanity on our airways, particularly when children are likely to be watching."

PTC Southeast Michigan Chapter Director Rich Coleman thanked The Henry Ford IMAX Theatre and MacGillivray Freeman Films for making this screening free for local families. "This is a unique opportunity to experience Michigan's largest IMAX Theater for free with a movie that the entire family will enjoy. Family entertainment is difficult to come by today, that is why the PTC works to partner with companies like MacGillivray Freeman Films. Those who came to this event will learn about some of the good guys in the entertainment industry and what families can do to fight those who show no concern for the adult content they put forward when children are in the audience," said Coleman.

Lucy Ann's Heroes of the Week - Rich Coleman
Rich Coleman, Pittsfield Township Public Safety Coordinator
While this may be his job, we know that Rich believes in his work so passionately that he never quits fighting for our children. He is a member of the Parents Television Council, produces crime prevention programs on CTN Public Access 17, and often volunteers his expertise and services to many organizations in our community. Most of this work is done on his own time. When a local girl fled to Puerto Rico to join a man who befriended her through XBox live chat, it sent a surge of fear through our community. Luckily, she was found and brought safely home. Still, many parents took a second look at their kids and wondered, "What if that happened to my child? Rich Coleman works every day to ensure that it never does. Going above and beyond the call of duty. That's why you are our hero, Rich Coleman.
