Precinct open houses a big hit in the community

In recognition of National Police Week, all of the City’s police precincts invited their neighbors to drop by to meet officers, crime prevention specialists and the precinct commander during the week of May 14. Visitors were able to tour the police precincts, see squad cars and police equipment, pick up crime prevention information and enjoy free snacks.

Precinct 5 held its open house on Monday, May 14. Here are some pictures from that event.

 National Police Week, which was established by a joint resolution of Congress in 1962, recognizes the service and sacrifice of U.S. law enforcement. National Police Week occurs each year during the week in which May 15 falls.
