Arlington County Police Department is going all out to promote this year’s upcoming neighborhood Police, Fire, & Sheriff Block Party. Their methods may be unusual, but they are certainly attracting the attention they were hoping to get all while showing a different side of law enforcement.

It all started when five officers decided to create a video to advertise the festivities. However, what started as a simple project turned into days of effort resulting in one fantastic viral video.

Having no synchronized swimming experience whatsoever didn’t hold back Sergeant Damon Washington, Officer Daniel Gardner, Captain Adrienne Quigley, Officer Ben Manning, and Officer Darryl Wilson from creating a video seen by thousands. The fearless men made something that attracted many residents to their event.

Are you attending Police, @ACFDPIO and Sheriff's Block Party? Here's the details on demonstration times and parking! 

“To be quite frank, it’s refreshing to do something that’s absolutely 180 degrees different than what police do on a day-to-day basis,” said Gardner. The video is definitely different from their usual routine, but so much fun to watch!

Making the video wasn’t all fun and games. It took a lot of trial and error when it came to the costume design for the swim routine. “We gotta keep it spicy and I jumped into the pool with the uniform,” Washington said, “but the funny thing is this vest is not a life preserver, this vest is actually a weight.”

“I had to have my other partner Dan or Darryl pull me out of the pool with one of the poles or something so I didn’t drown,” he added. Despite the wardrobe malfunctions, the group seemed to have a great time making the video.

They choreographed the routine themselves, and came back to the pool multiple times to get the shots just right. “It got pretty outrageous and I tell you we had so many takes because we were laughing so hard,” said Gardner.

The event takes place on Saturday, August 26 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Kenmore Middle School. The event gained a ton of local sponsorship, allowing them to feature a kid zone, a helicopter show, K-9 demonstrations, and much more all while providing free food and drinks!

The Block Party is expected to have a huge turnout thanks to the amazing efforts of the different departments to promote the event. “I think it’s an idea of how creative the team can be and new and engaging ways to meet different people and show a different side of policing,” said Quigley.

Manning, the officer featured as the first officer to jump into the pool, made it clear that this project meant a lot to him. “I really enjoy this part of what we do and being able to do real community outreach and show people the other side of police work,” he shared.

The Police, Fire, & Sheriff Block Party is sure to be a hit in the community. Manning announced, “We put this much effort into promoting our event — come on out because imagine what the event itself is going to be.”

BREAKING:   Hillary Clinton Donor Ed Buck Arrested After Another Male Overdoses In His Seedy LA Apartment

Democrat donor and Hillary friend Ed Buck was finally arrested Tuesday night after a third man overdosed in his apartment.

The man who overdosed in Ed Buck’s Los Angeles apartment last week survived, however the other two victims previously died.

Ed Buck will be in court Wednesday.

Ed Buck loves to inject young black gay escorts with methamphetamine — the mother of one of Ed Buck’s victims described it as a fetish.

He was finally arrested after two black gay escorts died in his apartment from overdoses.

KTLA 5 reported:

The prominent Democratic donor and LGBTQ political activist Ed Buck was arrested Tuesday and charged with operating a drug house and providing methamphetamine to a 37-year-old man who overdosed last week, officials said.

Buck was charged with three counts of battery causing serious injury, administering methamphetamine and maintaining a drug house, according to the Los Angeles County district attorney’s office. Buck is accused of injecting the victim, who survived, with methamphetamine on Sept. 11.

of another young black gay escort was found at the West Hollywood home of Ed Buck, a top Democrat donor and political activist.

As previously reported, a black gay escort named Gemmel Moore died of a meth overdose at Ed Buck’s West Hollywood home in July of 2017.

The LA County District Attorney’s Office previously declined to prosecute Ed Buck saying the evidence was “insufficient to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that (Buck) is responsible for the death of Gemmel Moore,” which sparked an outrage from family members and others in the community.

Jasmyne Cannick told FOX and Friends nearly a dozen black men have come forward to speak on their experiences with “serial predator” Ed Buck.
Cannick also went off on the Democrat Party: “Over 77% of black people in California vote Democratic. We vote for Democrats.

It is a shame that when something like this happens, when you have the chair of your state party when at the time of this , Eric Bauman, who was willing to turn a blind eye as well as instruct others not to speak on it. As a black woman, as a black Democrat, I expect more from my party.

Last week, a black male was seen entering Ed Buck’s seedy LA apartment.
