The Police Department will hold its next community engagement day on Friday, July 13, at the Danville Boys and Girls Club on Foster Street. The event will feature a Hawaiian party theme, with games, music, prizes and food.

Activities will begin at 2 p.m.

The event is one in a series conducted by the department’s  Community and Youth Engagement Unit. Police Chief Scott Booth established the unit earlier this year to focus on crime prevention and community education, youth and community engagement, and blight and nuisance abatement.

The first community engagement day was held on May 31 at Purdum Woods Apartments. Since then, community and youth engagement events have been held at Cardinal Village, Woodside Village, Bibleway Church and Pleasant View Avenue.

Upcoming events are scheduled at the YMCA (July 20), Danville Family Homes (July 26), Cedar Terrace Apartments (July 27) and East New Hope Church (Aug. 4).
