Our mission is to enhance the quality of life and provide exceptional police services to the residents, businesses and visitors of the Town of Leesburg. This event is integral in assisting us with accomplishing that mission,” Leesburg Police Chief Gregory Brown said in a prepared statement.
Activities include a moon bounce, a variety of refreshments and door prizes provided by event sponsors.
The Leesburg Police Department will have the Mobile Command Center, police cars and police motorcycles on display. Children are invited to meet Leesburg K-9 officers and to ride the Leesburg Police Barrel Train.
