Oxford Police Department Hosts 9th Annual Haunted House

14725567_10154647487179507_384637794467820981_nThe Oxford Police Department and Oxford Housing Authority will be hosting a haunted house on Oct. 20, 21, and 22 from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. in celebration of Halloween.

“We’re just seen as the authority figure and nobody wants to be around the authority figure, so events like these humanize us and make us seem like we’re just like everybody else,” said Chief of Police Joey East. “We get to know the community and bond with them and spend time with the families and their kids, and I think it builds a good trust and good relationship with the community.”

The haunted house will have several guides to take attendees through various “haunted” scenes. Tickets for entry are $3 a person and all proceeds go to the Oxford Peace Officers Association. For younger kids, there will be a designated area with face painting and games. The kid activities are geared towards children 8 and under and admission is $1.

In efforts to continue building relationships with Oxford residents, the Oxford Police Department fosters community engagement by hosting and participating in events geared towards the inclusion of all community members.

The police officers would also like to show Oxford residents that OPD cares about more than just enforcing laws, and that establishing positive relationships with all community members is a priority. Oxford Police Department supports the community and strives to be involved in community-related activities in a manner that is fun and positive for all.
