The Marco Island Police Department will host its first “Coloring with a Cop” event on Saturday, August 10, 2019 from 1 to 2 PM at the Marco Island Police Department. In addition to coloring with Marco Island officers, there will be fun children’s activities and snacks. Police vehicle tours will also be given.
This family-friendly event helps strengthen the bond between families with school-age children and law enforcement and helps the youngsters get to know their local police officers. Coloring together with the officers will help the children feel comfortable with the officers in uniform and reduce any fears they may have. This is all done in a fun, welcoming environment. The families will also have the opportunity to raise any concerns or questions they may have.
The MIPD also hosts regular “Coffee with a Cop” events at local establishments where members of the community interact with local officers.
The Marco Island Police Department is located at 51 Bald Eagle Drive. For more information call 239-389-5050. Follow the MIPD on Twitter @marcoislandpd and Instagram marcoislandpolicedept.
