The Wheat Ridge Police Department (WRPD) has created the Passport to Wheat Ridge to help support the renovation of the department’s first patrol car, Unit 1. Unit 1 will make appearances at special events in Wheat Ridge as part of the 50th Anniversary celebrations taking place throughout the city in 2019.
The 2019 Passport to Wheat Ridge is a limited edition tour around the city with special discounts from more than 35 local businesses. Holders of the Passport redeem special offers with a stamp provided by the business. There are 500 printed and Passports will only be available for the 2019 year to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the City of Wheat Ridge.
The proceeds from the 2019 Passport to Wheat Ridge are funding the restoration of the Wheat Ridge Police Department’s first patrol car, Unit 1, and will support other programs hosted by WRPD such as Operation Blue Santa, National Night Out and the Child Safety Fair.
The Passport to Wheat Ridge includes discount offers and coupons from businesses across the city, along with information about signature special events that build relationships within the community.
The Passport to Wheat Ridge is $25 and available for purchase online or at City Hall. The official 2019 Passports are available for pick up at the front desk of City Hall.
