Coburg Police officers to offer childcare

Coburg Police officers offer childcare during "Parents Night Out".

Posted: Dec 15, 2017 8:33 AM

COBURG, Ore. – Coburg Police Department will take on a new kind of duty Friday night. They will offer free childcare.

Coburg Police Chief Larry Larson said he came up with the idea for "Parent Night Out" five years ago. He said he wanted to put together an event that would strengthen the relationship between police officers and the community.

Larson said the idea behind "Parent Night Out" is to give parents a chance to treat themselves to some Christmas shopping or a date night.

“I think parents love it because it gives them some time away,” Larson said.

He said kids also get to enjoy some holiday treats.

“Coburg Pizza donates pizzas to feed all the kids,” he said. “We give them hot chocolate and candy canes.”

He said in the past they have hosted the event at the Coburg Community Grange, but because they outgrew it, this year it will take place inside the Coburg Community Charter School gym. Doors will open at 5:30 p.m., and officers will provide childcare until 10:30 p.m..

Larson said no prior registration is needed and everyone is welcome to drop off their children, but they prefer them to be out of diapers.
