The Seattle Police Department is inviting the public to visit their nearest precinct station on August 11 to "talk shop with cops" and enjoy traditional picnic activities.
According to SPD, the Picnic at the Precinct events will allow the public to "chow down on free food and ice cream while talking to Community Police Team Officers and Crime Prevention Coordinators about crime in your neighborhood.
"In addition to talking shop with your neighborhood cops, you can watch local bands and performers, play around in a bouncy house, participate in a raffle for items donated by local businesses, meet the four-legged officers from the K-9 and mounted units, tour the precincts, and check out the cool gadgets used by special units like SWAT."
Here's an online resource you can use to find the picnic nearest you: www.seattle.gov/police/maps/precinct_map.htm
The Aug. 11 events are sponsored by the Seattle Police Foundation.
