October 18, 2015— Local businesses, residents, and volunteers have rallied together to show their support for the Citrus Heights Police Department and local law enforcement during the week of October 18th-24th.
The Citrus Heights City Council created a proclamation proclaiming October 18th-24th as the “We Support Our Police Week.” The proclamation calls upon residents and businesses to join in commending the outstanding work of the Citrus Heights police officers and support officers in their commitment to community-oriented policing and their duty to serve the people by safeguarding the rights and freedoms of the citizens of Citrus Heights.
A petition was also created and signatures are being gathered from the community for the “We support Our Police” campaign. To commemorate the event, banners are being sold to local businesses who will proudly display the banners in support of local law enforcement. Individuals can also purchase a blue ribbon lapel to wear in support of law enforcement. All proceeds raised from the sale of the banners and ribbons will benefit the Citrus Heights Police Activities League.
The week long show of support will include the proclamation being presented at the Citrus Heights City Council meeting on October 22, 2015 and on October 24, 2015 at the “Howl O Ween” Parade and Harvest Festival at Rusch Park. The “Howl O Ween” Parade begins at Auburn/Twin Oaks at 9:00 AM and finishes at Rusch Park (7801 Auburn Blvd).
Any questions regarding the “We Support Our Police Week” should be directed to Special Operations Lieutenant Jason Russo (916) 727-5578.
