On Tuesday, June 13, Palo Verde (PV) housing hosted a community ‘Picnic and a Movie’ event, where they showed Disney’s ‘Zootopia’ on a giant outdoor movie screen. The movie is about Judy Hopps, who becomes the first rabbit to join the police force in Zootopia, a mammal metropolis where various animals live and thrive, and she quickly learns how tough it is to enforce the law. She is led on an adventure as she attempts to solve a mysterious case.
The PV staff supplied hot dogs, chips, and beverages for anyone who came join the festivities. Sergeant Sloan, Sergeant Mahoney, Officer Patton, Bessolo, Gomex, and Akingbemi mingled with residents and handed out ‘Junior Police Officer’ stickers to the children. Officer Akingbemi even served as the head chef as he grilled hot dogs for the residents. It was a terrific opportunity for our department to build positive relationships with the residents of Palo Verde.
