The Edmonds Police Department and Edmonds Police Foundation will have its annual open house 6-8 p.m. Thursday, July 26, at the Edmonds Police Station, 250 Fifth Ave. N.

Citizens will be introduced to Ace, the department’s newest K-9 officer, and his new friend Hobbs, the current police dog. Ace will be demonstrating what he has learned from his recent training. The Edmonds Police Foundation purchased Ace for the police department with funds donated by the community.

The open house will feature a children’s coloring contest, with participants receiving a free gift, while supplies last. Prizes will be awarded for the best picture. Clowns International will also participate. In addition, each child will receive one free raffle ticket, and child- appropriate items will be awarded to the winners.

The event will also include static displays of Edmonds Police equipment, including police vehicles, motorcycles, parking enforcement, as well as vehicles from South Snohomish County Fire & Rescue. Police equipment from both SWAT and the dive team will be on display. A distracted-driving crash car and its history will also be on site.

The public is invited to meet Edmond’ police officers and participants from Snohomish County Department of Emergency Management.

Guided tours of the police station will be available for adults and children.

There will also be an adult raffle for ride-alongs with the K-9 Unit and police officers, and for a session in the PRIsm Simulator used for training officers.
