Law Enforcement Proactive Day (Portsmouth)

Please join Ecocycling on Saturday, September 17, 2016 at the 2nd Annual Law Enforcement Proactive Day. The event is being held at the Portsmouth Kroger Marketplace, located at 1301 Frederick Boulevard, Portsmouth, VA from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. Members of the Portsmouth Police Department, Portsmouth Sheriff’s Office, Virginia State Police H.E.A.T. team, and the Portsmouth Fire Department will be on hand to answer questions about preventing crime, preventing fires, checking the installation of car safety seats, providing V.I.N. etching, providing Ident-A-Kid services, and so much more. This event is free and open to the public.

Ecocyclings collaborative educational forums, expos and symposiums help to bring groups together in order to move towards a more sustainable future through the sharing of information, resources, and abilities. Our involvement in “greening” the landscape is taken to the next level with numerous beautification, cleanup and garden programs. From simply planting a single tree to creating urban and rooftop gardens we help to transition over developed and often cold looking cityscapes to a blanket of lush and living greenery. When we are not planting for the future you may find us cleaning up the litter, trash and waste left behind by others though our recycling or other pedal up to clean-up programs.

This Saturday come visit our table at Law Enforcement Proactive Day. We will have some hands on learning activities, an Eco-art poster for kids to doodle, and also get your very own seed starter kit for a fall planting in your nearest garden.

This event is being hosted by Portsmouth Police Department
