The Police Department will hold its next community engagement day on Friday, July 20, at the Danville Family YMCA. The event will feature games and swimming (up to 35 swimmers). Lunch will be provided by First Taste Chinese Restaurant.
Activities will begin at 10 a.m. and continue to 1 p.m. The YMCA is located at 215 Riverside Drive.
The event is one in a series conducted by the Police Department’s Community and Youth Engagement Unit. Police Chief Scott Booth established the unit earlier this year to focus on crime prevention and community education, youth and community engagement, and blight and nuisance abatement.
The first community engagement day was held on May 31 at Purdum Woods Apartments. Since then, community and youth engagement events have been held at Cardinal Village, Woodside Village, Bibleway Church, Pleasant View Avenue and the Danville Boys and Girls Club.
Upcoming events are scheduled at Danville Family Homes (July 26), Cedar Terrace Apartments (July 27) and East New Hope Church (Aug. 4).
