Chief Alfredo Ruggiero ended the event saying, “Every one of these cards here on display were great. I wish we could have picked all of them, but there wouldn’t have been a card big enough to do that.”

North Providence police have one more winner to pick for this competition. It’s unclear if that winner has been selected.
