A sizeable crowd of citizens from throughout Grand County descended on Polhamus Park in Granby Tuesday night for Middle Park’s first ever entrée with the national law enforcement community outreach program.

Late afternoon rain showers had event organizers cautiously watching the skies above Granby before the event kicked off but by 5:30 p.m. the clouds had mostly cleared and the fellowship and festivities got underway. Police officers and Sheriff’s deputies mingled with elementary students and local families as citizens perused the entertainment and refreshment offerings provided for the night.

The crew from Mountain Parks Electric was busy serving up hotdogs, chips and pop while officers from the Granby PD served up fresh popped popcorn. The first responders from the Grand Fire Protection District offered root beer floats and along with Grand County EMS staged a mock traffic accident to let attendees get a more up close look at how they operate.

A K-9 demonstration was held provided by the the Summit County Sheriff’s Office and the evening wound down with a showing of the animated film “Zootopia” about an anthropomorphic bunny entering the police profession.
