We love our communities for many, many reasons – and feeling cared for is certainly on that list. So, we invite you to celebrate the men and women who have kept the city of Saint Paul safe and sound for 160 years during Saint Paul Police Appreciation Day! This special event will take place on September 20th, 2014 at Midway Stadium from 2-5 pm. In the event of rain, the celebration will be pushed to the following day.
As far as activities, the list is expansive. The gathering kicks off with parking lot exhibits from 2-3 pm. This will be followed by action-packed demonstrations of departments’ specialized unit, including:
- Mounted police
- Bomb Squad
- Motor vehicles
- SWAT team work
- Mobile Field Force
- K9 COPS (as featured on Animal Planet)
- Air rescue demonstration by highly trained members of the St. Paul Fire Department and Minnesota State Patrol, Minnesota’s first Mobile Air Rescue Team (M.A.R.T.)
While demonstrations only run until 5pm, the fun doesn’t stop there! There’s also music planned, which will be performed by Minnesota National Guard 34 Bull Infantry Division Band and the Minnesota Police Pipe Bands. And, of course, there will also be giveaways!
Finally, on a personal note: we here at Black Bear Crossings want to sincerely thank the men and women who risk their lives each day to make sure that Saint Paul community remains a safe and vibrant home for all citizens. We certainly know it can’t be easy – and we look forward to honoring all of that hard work this fall!
