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.”

Angry Dem Impeachment ‘Witness’: Pam Karlan Donated Thousands To Hillary And Was On Clinton’s List For Potential SCOTUS Nomination

The House Judiciary Committee, chaired by Rep. Jerrold Nadler, kicked off its first impeachment circus Wednesday morning.

The four ‘witnesses’ testifying have never actually witnessed any of Trump’s dealings with Ukraine firsthand — the four witnesses are law professors offering legal analysis.

One of the witnesses the Dems rolled out is an angry Hillary Clinton donor who was on Crooked’s list for a potential Supreme Court nomination.

No wonder why this unhinged, dowdy woman is so pissed off!

“Professor Pam Karlan donated thousands of dollars to Democrats and was on Hillary Clinton’s list for a potential Supreme Court nomination. So she certainly has no vendetta against President Trump,” GOP Rep. Mark Walker said.

Congressman Walker also pointed out that Noah Feldman, the Dems first partisan witness in Wednesday’s hearing tweeted about impeaching Trump right after he was sworn in.

Meet Noah Feldman, House Democrats first partisan witness.

Look at the date of this tweet. He has been trying to get @realDonaldTrump impeached since 46 days into his presidency.

His reason? Trump criticized President Obama.

This is a sham impeachment with sham witnesses.

The next witness, Karlan, has donated thousands to Democrats and was on Hillary Clinton’s list for a potential Supreme Court nomination.

So she certainly has no vendetta against @realDonaldTrump.

These witnesses are as serious as House Democrats impeachment case: not at all.

The entire sham show trial is stacked with partisan hacks who have wanted to impeach Trump from the moment he won in November of 2016.

Norm Eisen, the Democrats’ counsel who is blasting Trump and questioning witnesses in Wednesday’s show trial, tweeted about impeaching Trump before Donald Trump was even sworn into office!
