Want to ask the Edmonds Police Department some questions?
That the idea of the department's Community Engagement Team, which held its first "Park Tour" recently at Mathay-Ballinger Park in the city's east end.
About 20 people attended, said Sgt. Josh McClure.
"We realized that our residents are using the parks and getting out of the house," he said. "We believed that this would be a good way to go out to them and let them approach us. We feel the first session went well. I posted a follow-up to the questions we got on our Facebook and Instagram accounts."
Joining McClure on the Community Engagement Team are Detective Julie Govantes, Officer Nick Haughian, Officer Brittany Johnson, Senior Animal Control Officer Tabatha Shoemake, K-9 Officer Jason Robinson, K-9 Officer Josh Hwang, and Officer Lou Daniels.
The next Park Tour is 6-7 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 3, at Seaview Park.
Other Park Tours, all at 6 p.m., are Tuesday, Sept. 8, at Pine Street Park; Thursday, Sept. 17, at Hickman Park; and Monday, Sept. 21, at City Park.
Dates for Yost and Haines Wharf parks will be announced.
