Don’t Get Tricked - Know Your Limit
Ahead of Halloween the Annapolis Police Department is holding a Know Your Limit event on Saturday, October 28 from 9pm to 11:30pm at Market Space.  Officers will be on foot near the Market House offering free breathalyzer tests.  Volunteer participants will be asked if they feel safe to drive a car, and then blow into a portable breathalyzer. Participants will be told what their blood alcohol content is and given an educational card with information on alcohol consumption and options to get home safely.  For this event we are also teaming up with the Annapolis Substance Abuse Prevention (ASAP) Coalition to educate people about binge drinking.  According to the 2016 Maryland Young Adult Survey on Alcohol (MYSA) half of 18 to 25 year olds who drink are binge drinking and don’t realize it. 


 
Trunk or Treat
Join us at St. Martin’s Lutheran Church at 1120 Spa Rd for a Trunk or Treat spooktacular night on 10/27 from 6pm to 8:30pm.  Officers will be handing out treats and tricking out their police cars for this event.  For more information visit the St. Martin’s Trunk-or-Treat Facebook page at http://bit.ly/2z29CQG
