LAKELAND POLICE DEPARTMENT OPEN HOUSE - SATURDAY, OCTOBER 19TH

The Lakeland Police Department will hold their Open House on Saturday, October 19th from 10:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m. This year our theme is “Let’s Keep Moving”. We are focusing on health, wellness and fitness and have invited vendors to share their information to help us get…and stay healthy! Some of the businesses that have committed are:  Just Dance, Planet Fitness, LA Fitness, Bent’s Bicycle Shop, LeRoy’s Bicycle Shop, InnerAct Alliance and Omega Man, to just name a few.

In addition to the vendors that will share a wealth of knowledge, we will have our K9’s, SWAT team, DUI Enforcement, Hostage Negotiators, Crime Scene Techs, the Helicopter and more! Along with LPD’s components, we will have other city partners with us; the Fire Department, Lakeland Electric, Lakeland Water, Coleman Bush and Simpson Park.

There will be tours of the police station beginning at 10:30 a.m. and run until 1:30 p.m. These tours include the Crime Lab, Communications Center and the Emergency Operations Center.

You will be able to enjoy plenty of children’s activities and entertainment. And, hot dogs and popcorn will be served during the event.

So gather your family, friends and neighbors and come out and enjoy a day with the Lakeland Police Department.
