Held at 8th District headquarters, the event has four main goals:

  • heighten crime and drug prevention awareness

  • strengthen neighborhood spirit and police-community partnerships
  • send a message to criminals that neighborhoods are organized and fighting back

DJs from 98.1 WOGL will be on hand as the District hosts bike ID etching, kid fingerprinting, free food and mini burglary seminars to be held at 6:30 and 7:30 p.m. Kids can make use of the moon bounce and bike rodeo, and the whole family can play portable bowling and take part in the hula hoop contest.

Blue porch lights will be available for purchase to support the Police Explorers fundraising efforts.
