Officers from the Wake Forest Police Department, members of the Wake Forest Police Department's Explorers Program, along with 17 young men and women ranging in age from 13-18, attended the Carolina Hurricanes hockey game Friday night. This is one event of several that are scheduled this year. These events are part of the Youth Outreach Program which is made possible through a grant provide by Lowes Home Improvement, Wake County Habitat for Humanity and the Northeast Community Coalition. The Carolina Hurricanes donated the game tickets and the Heritage High School provided the bus for transportation to and from the game. 40 people attended the event. The night included a meal at the Wake Forest Golden Corral, the hockey game and concessions at the game. This was an awesome event where officers could interact with the area youth, everyone could have a good time and help the effort to build a positive relationship between the police department and young members of our community.
