      DC Police Continue to Host Halloween Safe Haven Parties

      The Metropolitan Police Department will host Halloween Safe Haven parties around the city to offer

      a community-friendly option for the city's youth.

      The events are grant funded. Officers began planning the annual events in October 2002, leading up

      to Halloween prior to the arrest of the so-called D.C. Sniper suspects. The parties were designed to

      ease fears and allow families an indoor option for trick or treaters. Seven years later, officers look

      forward to hosting these events to meet and greet the youngest community members.

      Each police station will host an event in addition to a new event this year at Bald Eagle Recreation

      center in Southeast Washington, where officers and Recreation Center staff will host youth boxing

      demonstrations to highlight a successful after-school program aimed at showing local youth an

      alternative to violence.

      or dial the police hotline for information on youth events, 202-Im-
