Local Law Enforcement Host Family Fall Fest

By  | 

Knoxville (WVLT) -- What better way to learn how to stay safe than in a scaled down version of Knoxville?

2,000 folks were expected to attend Saturday morning's Seventh Annual Family Fall Fest.

The event is a joint effort of the Knoxville Police, UT Police and the Knox County Sheriff's Department.

"It's actually two pronged," said David Kitts, a training specialist with the Knox County Sheriff's Office. "October is domestic violence awareness month, so we have a lot of agencies here talking about family violence issues and at the same time its an outreach to the community from our law enforcement agencies."

It was the sheriff's department's first year participating.

Attendee could enjoy kids games, free food, give-aways, and SWAT and helicopter team demonstrations.

Halloween night the Knoxville Police will open Safety City to trick-or-treaters.
