The O’Fallon, Missouri, Police Department is hosting an Informational Open House on Saturday, February 28, from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m.
The event includes tours of the department for residents and members of the public who want to see the facility and familiarize themselves with the present location before the April 7, 2015, election when voters will be asked to consider authorizing the City to issue bonds for the construction of a new Police Station and Court. Activities and giveaways for children will be available, including take-home Child ID Kits.
“The Open House is an opportunity for the community to take a tour of our department and really get a glimpse at what it looks like behind the scenes,” said Police Officer Diana Damke, Public Information Officer for the department. “We’ll have activities for adults and children, and we encourage our residents to come out and learn about the great programs our Department offers. More importantly, attendees will have a chance to meet many of the men and women of the O’Fallon Police Department and really get acquainted with some of our officers.”
“In addition to being a great family event, this Open House also is a chance for our residents to see the current condition of our police station,” said Tom Drabelle, City of O’Fallon Communications Director. “Since the announcement that Proposition 1 would be on the April ballot, one of the most common questions we have received is ‘Why does O’Fallon need a new police station?’ This is a chance for residents to come and see our current facility for themselves, so they can make an informed decision this April.”
The O’Fallon Police Department is located in the O’Fallon Municipal Centre, 100 North Main Street, O’Fallon 63366. Come to the east entrance off the parking lot. For more information, please contact the O’Fallon Police Department at 636-240-3200.
