Sheriff’s Office Hosts Community Outreach Events in the Security and Widefield Community

October 18, 2018

In 2017, the El Paso County Sheriff’s Office launched a Park, Walk and Talk Initiative. The objective was to reach out to selected communities within the Sheriff’s Office jurisdiction, with a goal to reduce crime and provide educational crime prevention programs while engaging with the community.

This quarter, the Sheriff’s Office will be focusing its efforts in District 5, which includes the Security and Widefield community. The Sheriff’s Office will host the following events:

Coffee with a Cop, Friday, October 19, 2018, 9:00 AM-11:00 AM, I-Hop, 6450 S U.S. Hwy 85/87. This event brings law enforcement and community members together for an informal conversation to discuss community issues, build relationships and drink coffee.

Neighborhood Watch Informational, Friday, October 19, 2018, 3:00 PM-5:00 PM, Widefield Community Center, 705 Aspen Dr. This will include a presentation on what Neighborhood Watch is, in addition to how to start a program in your neighborhood.

Safety Day, Saturday, October 20, 2018, 9:00 AM-11:00 AM, Colorado Center Fire Department, 4770 Horizonview Dr.

Marijuana Forum, Saturday, October 20, 2018, 1:00 PM-3:00 PM, Widefield Community Center, 705 Aspen Dr.  This will be an opportunity for community members to learn more about what is legal, how to spot an illegal marijuana problem and gain valuable information about what the Sheriff’s Office is doing to stop this growing problem.

Trunk or Treat, Saturday, October 20, 2018, 3:00 PM-5:00 PM, Ross Parking Lot, 310 Main St.  This event will provide a safe location for kids to trick or treat while engaging with local first responders.  There will also be a Commander Center open during this time for citizens to ask questions of representatives from the Sheriff’s Office.

We look forward to meeting and addressing the concerns of the citizens in the Security and Widefield area.
