Summer of Safety

Summer of Safety

We might be entering spring, but the Greenville Police Department is getting ready for summer!

The Greenville Police Department is gearing up for summer and is excited to continue offering programs and activities to the community where children and parents can interact with the officers.

The summer will kick off with the Officer David Dickson Memorial Fishin’ Friday on June 3rd at Graham Park from 9 am to noon. This year is the 25th anniversary of the program started by retired Greenville Police Officer Phillip Kilgore and then renamed after Officer David Dickson when he passed unexpectantly. The Police Department will have all the fishing gear, worms, and a hot dog lunch for everyone that attends. We hope to pack the park and plan on having a few special guests. The Parks Department will be stocking the pond with plenty of fish so come on out and spend the morning relaxing with your kids in the park.

The Greenville Police Department Summer of Safety started in the 1990s when Greenville Police Department School Resource Officer Phillip Kilgore saw that children in our community needed activities on Fridays when school was not in session. 

The dates for the Summer of 2022 are:

  • Officer David Dickson Memorial Fishin’ Friday – June 3rd
  • Kids Camp - June 6th-June 10th
  • Officers with Popsicles - July 1st-July8th
  • Teen Police Academy - July 18th-July 22nd
  • Hunter Education Class - August 4th-August 5th 
  • Splash and Movie Friday – August 13th
