This summer National Night Out will be held in Hayward Park in Wheat Ridge on Tuesday, August 1 from 4- 8 p.m. National Night Out is an annual community-building campaign that promotes police-community partnerships and neighborhood camaraderie to make our neighborhoods safer, more caring places to live. National Night Out enhances the relationship between neighbors and law enforcement while bringing back a true sense of community. Furthermore, it provides a great opportunity to bring police and neighbors together under positive circumstances.
Police, fire and EMS vehicles will be on display as well as lots of fun activities for kids and families like balloon animals and face painting. At the event you can sign up for this year's Citizen Police Academy that is held for 12 weeks starting August 23, 2017. In addition, we'll launch a brand new program that night for dog walkers called WRPD Dog Walker Watch. The program is designed to add more ears and eyes for WRPD to identify and report suspicious behavior as neighbors walk around the community on daily dog walks. Register online for the first class on July 11 from 6-7 p.m. at http://www.ci.wheatridge.co.us/wrpddogwatch or register in-person for the August 7 class at National Night Out.
