Parents and children were given tips on how to combat community dangers such as violent crime, bullying and civil rights violations.

Law Enforcement used the event to help establish a positive relationship with parents and children in the community to help improve communication and promote a safe neighborhood.

Along with the educational materials, there was face painting, a cupcake walk, games and pumpkin painting.

Representatives from the U.S. Attorney's Office; FBI; ATF; Lexington Police; Lexington Fire Department; Douglass Park Neighborhood Association; Secret Service; Fayette County Sheriff's Office; and Kentucky State Police partnered to put on the event.
