Sahara Sam’s Oasis indoor and outdoor water park and the Berlin Township Police Department have teamed up to host an event promoting public safety in the local community. The event, Public Safety Appreciation Day, takes place Friday, May 8, 2015 at 4:00 PM at the southern New Jersey-based indoor water park.
“We understand the importance of law enforcement in our community and across the country,” said Ilya Girlya, CEO and owner of Sahara Sam’s Oasis. “As a part of this community for more than six years, we really wanted a way to give back to the public safety professionals that support Berlin Township.”
Tickets for Public Safety Appreciation Day include full admission to the water park and are available to the public at a discounted rate. A portion of the ticket proceeds will go towards Berlin Township Police Department’s programs including: Drug Education Programs and Community Outreach Programs.
“We’re excited to work with Sahara Sam’s on an event that allows our local community to learn more about law enforcement in a family-friendly setting,” says Chief Leonard Check, of Berlin Township Police Department.
The May 8th event will also feature demonstrations from the Berlin Township Police Department and the SAMBULANCE Safety Squad, a 501(c)3 that teaches safety education to the special needs community.
“Berlin Township Police vehicles will be on location as well as the department’s Special Response Team Vehicle. Also, Voorhees Township Police Department will be stopping by to give a K-9 Demonstration,” said Check. “Partnering with local businesses, like Sahara Sam’s, strengthens the bond between law enforcement and the community making for higher awareness of public safety.”
