Washington County Attorney’s Office—2017 Annual Report 25 Community Outreach Washington County Fair Many staff members volunteered to work at our County Fair booth. Staff talked to people who came to our booth, told them about the work our office does and gave out crime prevention information. Students (K-12) signed a pledge to commit to graduate from high school and were entered into a drawing to win a class ring donated by Jostens and an iPad donated by Sam’s Club. Staff also helped at the Senior Day event where seniors were given some information on preventing identity theft, enjoyed refreshments and bingo and senior volunteers of the year were recognized. Safe Summer Night A series of events called “Safe Summer Nights” were started in St. Paul in 2014. In 2017 we were able to bring this event to Washington County again in Oakdale. Free food (hamburgers, hot dogs, pop, etc.) and activities were provided to communities while local police are there to meet the citizens and enjoy a cook-out with them. Events typically focus on poor or distressed communities where police are often active.
