Community Programs

Public Safety Community Block Party

On August 20, 2022, for the first time in over 20 years, the Ventura Police and Fire Departments hosted a free, community block party open to the public. Activities at the Public Safety Community Block Party featured multiple  K9 demonstrations, a Jaws of Life vehicle extrication demonstration, fire extinguisher game, a hands-on CSI experience, a kid’s firefighter challenge course, child fingerprinting, station tours, coloring contests, trivia, and more.  Residents  and children had the opportunity to explore patrol cars, motorcycles, fire engines, the SWAT rescue vehicle, a police helicopter, K9s, and various emergency response vehicles. Participants also learned about a wide variety of safety topics and enjoyed interactive  games.

By opening the doors to the Police & Fire Headquarters to welcome in community members, the Ventura Police Department was able to demystify police  operations and residents were able to engage in relationship building with local police officers, firefighters, dispatchers, and elected officials while having fun learning about crime prevention and fire safety.

This event was funded by the Ventura Police Community Foundation. To learn more about the Public Safety Community Block Party, please visit

Women's Wellness Event

The Women’s Wellness event is a community program dedicated to helping women in our community receive valuable information in regards to their personal health and wellbeing. We aim to provide the opportunity to create self-awareness in order to make new healthy life choices, in all stages of life. Our professional and mentor speaker presentations bring an educational insight and can help to enhance the quality of self-care and boost positive behavioral life choices.

With coordination with VPD this event is filled with education prevention, healing, lifestyle influences, protection awareness, supportive resources, positive health care, self help support, fun, friendship enhancement, and informative educational resources.

Women of all ages, background, and ethnicities are invited to attend! Join in the learning, sharing, and celebration. The venues are all local and fun and are not just a classroom presentation!

This event helps all of us to build and create a culture that supports Women’s health and wellness in every walk of life.
