The Winchester Police Department (WPD) will host its third-annual Color with a Cop event on Tuesday, November 5 (Election Day) at two locations:

  • Apple Blossom Mall Food Court (1850 Apple Blossom Drive) – 11:00 a.m.-1:00 p.m.


“We are so excited to be hosting Color with a Cop for a third year. The event has been quite successful and gives us an opportunity to meet the city’s youngest residents,” stated Lt. Amanda Behan, who has co-organized the event since its inception in 2017. “Our community is of utmost importance to us, which is why we stay busy with these outreach events. We enjoy being out and talking with people, no matter their age, to forge those relationships that are meaningful to citizens and officers alike.” 


Crayons and coloring sheets will be provided, but attendees are encouraged to bring their own. Schools in Winchester and Frederick County will be closed for Election Day November 5.
