Strong Neighborhoods Days

Join us for Strong Neighborhoods Days block parties. These community outreach events provide an informal opportunity for neighbors to meet and engage with other residents and Rockford Police Department district officers.

Activities include giveaways, bomb robot demonstrations, and tours of the Rockford Police mobile command center and select Strong Neighborhoods Houses. United Way will provide food, catered by Zina Horton from local favorite, Zammuto's, and will also distribute free t-shirts to attendees.

Strong Neighborhood Days are free and open to the public 12:00 p.m. - 2:00 p.m.
