PCSO COPS Deputies Host K-ville Community Festival

The public and media representatives are invited to attend the annual spring K-Ville Community Festival, hosted by the Polk County Sheriff's Office COPS (Community Oriented Policing) deputies of the K-Ville area.

The festival will take place on Saturday, May 1, 2004, from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m., at the K-Ville COPS station at K-Ville Avenue and Payne Street in Lakeland.

Sparky the fire dog, a dunking tank, a "moon walk" donated by the Office of Neighborhood Partnerships, the PCSO helicopter and K-9 unit demonstrations, and loads of other fun things are on tap for children and adults to enjoy. There will also be free hot dogs and hamburgers, and T-shirts.

This event is open to the public, with the goal of continuing to interact with and strengthen the bond with the people in the K-Ville community.

"We are excited to partner with the K-Ville community, with the cooperation of BOCC, and are looking forward to this time of food, fun, and fellowship," says Colonel Grady Judd. "Our deputies are committed to providing the resources needed to improve the quality of life in Polk County. Instilling a sense of community, through events such as this, is paramount."

Media representatives are encouraged to attend this event. Photo opportunities will be made available.
