Two events engaging the Pekin Police Department with citizens will take place this week.


The department’s second Cops for Kids event will run from 10 a.m. to noon Tuesday at the Magic Dragon Golf and Games at Mineral Springs Park. Officers will play miniature golf with children, who will enjoy cookies from Subway Restaurant outlets in Pekin.


Tickets for the event and remaining Cops for Kids summer outings are available at Police Headquarters.


Officers also will discuss concerns and issues with residents of its District 3 patrol zone, generally on the city’s southeast side at 5:30 p.m. Wednesday at City Council Chambers in City Hall.


The meeting is the second of four planned through the year for District 3, along with other districts, as part of the department’s Community and Police Problem Solving (CAPPS) program.
