Community Block Party

In partnership with the Ventura Police Community Foundation, the Ventura Police & Fire Departments are proud to invite Ventura residents to a free, community block party from 11:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m. on Saturday, August 26, 2023. This family-friendly event will be hosted at the Police and Fire Headquarters, located at 1425 Dowell Drive in Ventura.

We are opening our doors and exterior gates and welcoming our community into our Police and Fire Headquarters. This is a great opportunity for residents and families to engage with local police officers, firefighters, and dispatchers and have fun learning about crime prevention and fire safety!
