Posted on 06/14/2017

Orland Park residents are invited to attend the Orland Park Police Department's three Cookout With Cops planned for this summer in different village parks.

Free hot dogs and snacks are provided in a fun and relaxed setting. Younger residents enjoy having firsthand views of police equipment and enjoy games and prizes.

"Cookout With Cops is a nice, neighborhood event that enables residents of all ages to meet police officers in a comfortable, non-emergency setting," said Village Trustee Dan Calandriello, chair of the village's Public Safety Committee. "This is a great time to share concerns with police personnel and to learn more about the different programs the police department offers."

The department's 2017 cookouts will be held Monday, June 19 at Evergreen View Park, 87th Avenue and 141st Street; Monday, July 10 at Discovery Park, 11500 Brookhill Drive; and Monday, July 24 at Cachey Park, 8401 Wheeler Drive.

"We always have a good time at these events," said Police Chief Tim McCarthy. "Police personnel enjoy getting to know people in the different neighborhoods and the residents learn about what's happening in the area and all that we do to keep the community safe."

Residents are welcome to attend any or all of the cookouts. Questions may be directed to the police department non-emergency number at 708/349-4111.
