Join us on Tuesday September 4th for Jake Laird Community Day!
The 9th annual Jake Laird Community Day will be held on Tuesday, September 4 at Quaker Park from 5:00 PM – 8:00 PM. Jake Laird Community Day usually includes: free hot dogs and popcorn, live music, and various activities including bounce houses, face painting, a balloon artist, a rock climbing wall, and a K9 demonstration. Officers will showcase the Department’s vehicles, equipment and programs.
Jake Laird Community Day is sponsored by Hamilton county residents Mike and Debbie Laird, whose son, Officer Timothy “Jake” Laird of the Indianapolis Police Department, gave his life in the line of duty on August 18, 2004. In his honor, the Westfield Police Department will pay tribute to Jake and promote the spirit of community by providing an evening of food and fun for the residents of Westfield.
After Jake’s death, the Lairds established the Jake Laird Memorial Fund which provides funds for local law enforcement agencies in need of new equipment, innovating new programs, and assists with officer hardships. The Laird Family is known as friends to numerous police agencies throughout Indiana sponsoring programs that strengthen community relations.
