Mountlake Terrace police offer open house, memorial

MOUNTLAKE TERRACE — Police are inviting neighbors to come meet their local officers and see inside the station.

The upcoming Mountlake Terrace Police Department open house also will include a memorial flag ceremony for fallen officers.

The family-friendly event will include station tours and a chance to check out squad cars and jail cells, special services Sgt. Kevin Pickard said.

“You walk away with a bigger impression of what we do, and it’s good to see a smile on some of the faces of the kids,” he said.

Police department employees look forward to the open house every year, Pickard said. They enjoy chatting with the community about their work.

Detectives, animal control officers and evidence experts are expected to attend, he said. There also will be pet licenses for sale, and animals available for adoption.

“It’s a great way to allow the community to come into the police department,” he said. “We’re in a secured environment and, at that time, we open the doors up.”

The open house is planned from 6 to 8 p.m. Tuesday at the Mountlake Terrace Police Station, 5906 232nd St. SW. The memorial ceremony and color guard event will start at 6 p.m. at the flagpole in front of the station.
