The Owensboro Police Department Presents “Run from the Cops 5k”

Personally, I’ve never run from the cops, but this event might change my mind as we got this cool press release from the OPD.

The Owensboro Police Department is excited to announce the 2nd Annual Run from the Cops 5K and the 9th Annual Police Awareness Day. Both events are scheduled for Saturday, April 26th at the Owensboro Police Department.

The Run from the Cops 5k is scheduled to begin at 8:30 a.m. and will start and end at the Owensboro Police Department. Registration information and the route map can be viewed here , or you can register in person at the Owensboro Police Department. Costumes are encouraged! Money raised by this event will go towards the Crime Prevention Unit’s D.A.R.E. fund and specialty units within the Owensboro Police Department.

The Police Awareness Day event will be held from 10:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m. in the back parking lot for those interested in meeting some of our officers. It is open to the public and everyone is welcome to join us for free hotdogs, hamburgers, and drinks. We will have several booths set up that will highlight the various aspects of police work; you will see booths for the Hazardous Devices Unit, our K-9 Unit, the Evidence Collection Unit, and the Emergency Response Unit. Several vehicles will be displayed, and we will also be hosting members from surrounding agencies. For our younger visitors, we will offer an inflatable playhouse, face painting, child I.D. kits, and other kid activities. Be sure to take one of our guided building tours during your visit as well.

There will also be a manned prescription drug toss location on site during the event for any unwanted and/or expired prescription medications. Just remember, we cannot accept needles or liquids when tossing your medications.

Come join the fun on Saturday, April 26th.
