Sarasota Police Department to host Community Barbecue
The Sarasota Police Department, in partnership with the City of Sarasota Parks and Recreation, is inviting the community to a free community ‘Blue + You BBQ’ on Sunday, January 12, 2020, from 2 p.m. until 4 p.m. at the Arlington Park and Aquatic Complex, 2650 Waldemere Street, Sarasota. This is an opportunity for residents to come out, grab a bite to eat and meet their local police officers.
This event is the second of several community barbecues that are being held throughout the City of Sarasota. There will be free food, juice, water, face painting, music, and family friendly games and prizes provided by the City of Sarasota Parks and Recreation. There will also be police vehicles on display.
“This is an opportunity for us to connect with our community, foster relationships and continue to build trust with those who we serve and protect every day,” said Chief Bernadette DiPino.
Additional community barbecue events are scheduled for April 2020 at the Robert L. Taylor Community Complex.
