Kicking-off the Summer with the Trenton PD

June 2, 2017

Fabiana Pierre-Louis, Veronica Allende, and Jim Otten from the U.S. Attorney’s Office Trenton Branch were pleased to volunteer at the Trenton Police Department’s "Halfway to Halloween" Summer Kick-Off Event on the lovely evening of June 1, 2017. The event included carnival games, music, a petting zoo, bounce houses, and tons of candy!

For their part, members of the U.S. Attorney’s Office ran the “Feed the Beast” game in which children tossed small beanbags through the mouth of the cardboard “beasts.” Luckily the kids were better at the game than the USAO staff.


The event had a great turnout, with an estimated 2,500 attendees, including 1,700 children. We're thankful that the Trenton PD hosted the event and invited us to come along. Everyone had a blast!
