Methuen Police Department to Host Open House

METHUEN — Mayor Stephen N. Zanni and Police Chief Joseph Solomon are pleased to announce that the Methuen Police Department will be hosting its annual open house next month.

WHEN:

Saturday, Oct. 14 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

WHERE:

Methuen Police Department, 90 Hampshire St.

WHO:

  • Methuen Police Officers
  • Methuen Police Department C.A.R.E.S. Advocates
  • Representatives from the Police Assisted Addiction and Recovery Initiative (P.A.A.R.I.)

WHAT:

Join the Methuen Police for their annual open house which will feature tours of the police station, K-9 demonstrations and S.W.A.T. equipment.

Methuen Police vehicles will be on display for visitors to explore, including motorcycles, all terrain vehicles (ATVs), patrol vehicles, the public safety boat and the department’s personal watercraft. Residents can meet “Chase” from Paw Patrol and try on police equipment, and children who attend can put together a free child I.D. kit.

“These open houses are a wonderful way for law enforcement and residents to get to know each other in a relaxed setting, and ultimately, they bring our community closer together,” Mayor Zanni said.

“We really enjoy hosting the open house each year to give residents the opportunity to come and meet their police officers in a fun environment,” Chief Solomon said. “There will be a lot of exciting activities again this year and we hope everyone will have a chance to stop by and join us.”

There will also be an Methuen Police Department “selfie” station for attendees to snap pictures, which they can share on social media by using the hashtag #MPDOpenHouse.

Free food and refreshments will be provided.
