Doral Gears Up for New School Year with Safety and Supplies

Doral, FL – The Doral Police Department and the Parks & Police 4 Kids (PP4K) Foundation joined forces with over 50 sponsors and partners for National Night Out and Back to School on August 2nd. This fun-filled and informative event prepared families for back to school season while equipping them with beneficial tips on crime watch and public safety.

Seven-hundred and fifty free backpacks filled with supplies gave school-aged children a boost in preparing for the upcoming school year. This year’s record setting attendance was calculated at over 2,000 adults and children.

PP4K is a 501 (c) (3) not-for-profit corporation organized to provide child welfare and family services to the community. The Mayor and Council, along with the Police Department and the Parks & Recreation Department, work closely with PP4K to coordinate events and programs geared towards achieving this important goal.

National Night Out, “America’s Night Out Against Crime”, began in 1984 as an effort to promote involvement in crime prevention activities, police-community partnerships, neighborhood camaraderie.  The Doral Police Department is a nationally recognized innovator in Community Oriented Policing and was recognized in February 2016 by U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch for building legitimacy and trust with the community, one of the six pillars of 21st Century Policing.
