Fullerton, CA – Interim Police Chief, Dan Hughes, invites members of the Fullerton community to stop by the Fullerton Police Department for an OPEN HOUSE, on Saturday, October 20, 2012 from 10 am to 2pm. This is one of the first complete Open House of the Fullerton Police Department in about 20 years.
Tours of the Police Departments will allow visitors an opportunity to see the jail, dispatch area and the shooting range where firearms training will be simulated. These are areas that are generally not seen by the public before. Information on bicycle helmet safety, iWatch, Return Home Registry and Citizen’s Academy will also be available at the Open House.
“Growing up in Fullerton, I was always proud of our police and their commitment to the safety of the residents in this great city,” commented Interim Chief Dan Hughes. “Now, as I wear the badge myself, and am given the awesome responsibility of leading this department, I want our residents, young and old, to know what an honor it is for all of us to serve the people of Fullerton and our neighboring cities.”
A special dedication ceremony will take place at 11am to honor officers who gave up their lives in the course of duty. These officers include: Jerry Hatch, Tommy DeLaRosa, Bill Grob, Steve Johnson and Mike MacDonald.
The Fullerton Police Department is located at 237 West Commonwealth Avenue in Fullerton across the street from City Hall. Refreshments at the Open House will be provided by the Fullerton Police Officers’ Association.
