Lompoc Plans Open House for National Police Week

Visit the station on Saturday for refreshments, displays and tours.

President Bush has declared Thursday as National Peace Officers Memorial Day to honor law enforcement officers who have given their lives in service to their communities throughout the country.

Thousands will gather at the national memorial in Washington, D.C., to honor the 181 officers killed in the line of duty during 2007.  The names of 18,274 fallen law enforcement officers are engraved at the memorial as a permanent testament to their dedication and sacrifice.

In honor of National Police Week (Sunday through May 17), the Lompoc Police Department is hosting an open house from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday.

The public is invited to enjoy refreshments, law enforcement displays and police station tours. There will be a Special Enforcement Team (SWAT), K-9 and police motorcycle/vehicle displays along with the Lompoc Police Department’s state-of-the-art mobile command post and more.

The Lompoc Police Officers’ Association also will hold a barbecue fundraiser during the event.

For more information, call Sgt. Danny Rios at 805.875.8155.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
