VIA Marks National Night Out with Celebration on the Plaza
VIA Metropolitan Transit and the VIA Transit Police Department celebrated National Night Out at Centro Plaza on Tuesday, Oct. 1.
The public was invited to enjoy entertainment, cotton candy, shaved iced and the chance to meet the VIA Transit Police Department’s K-9 Unit, police officers. People had a chance to take a photo with Safety Sofie, VIA’s mascot who encourages safety on VIA buses and properties.
National Night Out is an annual community-building campaign that promotes police-community partnerships and provides a great opportunity to bring the two together under festive circumstances.
VIA Transit Police is dedicated to serving the traveling public by working with our community, customers, and law enforcement partners to create a safe environment throughout VIA’s service area. VIA Transit Police officers maintain a presence at VIA facilities, offices, transit centers, shelters and stops, and the routes where VIA operates.
