Lakewood police will whip up a hearty pancake breakfast at the 19th annual Cops That Cook event, Friday, Aug. 18, 7 to 10 a.m., at the Clements Community Center, 1580 Yarrow St.

Proceeds benefit the Lakewood Police Department’s Caring by Sharing program, which assists Lakewood’s less fortunate senior citizens throughout the year through a variety of events. The headline project is around the holiday season, where funds raised go toward the creation of boxes filled with food and gift items that are delivered by city personnel and community members. In addition to these holiday baskets, the program provides support to the Action Center with backpacks, school supplies and winter apparel throughout the year.

In addition to enjoying breakfast, event attendees can mingle with police agents, see a K-9 police dog demonstration, check out a SWAT vehicle and get a free photo with an agent.

Tickets can be purchased in advance – $4, $3 children 12 and under – at the reception desks of the Clements Community Center, Lakewood Police Department, 445 S. Allison Parkway, and Community Resources Department, 480 S. Allison Parkway. Tickets will also be available for purchase at the door for $6. Donations can also be made by visiting the website.
