Celebrate Police Week at the Ankeny Police Week Community Picnic

In honor of National Police Week, the Ankeny Police Department invites the public to attend the 2022 Ankeny Police Week Community Picnic on Thursday, May 12, 4 – 7 p.m., at the Ankeny Police Headquarters, 411 SW Ordnance Road in Ankeny.

Residents are invited to meet Ankeny police officers and detectives, see Ankeny’s classic 1964 police car, CSI van and other equipment used by officers, take a tour of Ankeny Police Headquarters and witness the landing of the LifeFlight helicopter at 6 p.m. Ankeny officers will also offer free child safety seat inspections. Chick Fil-A will serve the first 1,000 attendees a free meal and Kona Ice will give away free snow cones while supplies last. All activities are free and open to the public.

This event is designed to provide a community service while fostering ongoing communications and relationships between the local Police Department and Ankeny residents.

National Police Week takes place May 11 - 17. This week serves as a designated time to celebrate police officers and the important work they do in our nation’s communities. President John F. Kennedy signed a proclamation in 1962 designating National Peace Officers Memorial Day as May 15, and the week in which that date falls as National Police Week.
