WESTFIELD - Westfield had its annual Jake Laird Community Day Tuesday at Quaker Park.

Sponsored by Hamilton county residents Mike and Debbie Laird, the event celebrates the life of Officer Timothy "Jake" Laird of the Indianapolis Police Department, who gave his life in the line of duty on Aug. 18, 2004.

Debbie Laird says her son had an affinity for community events and helping the underserved during his time with IMPD.

"This event is a wonderful way for the community to be able to see an officer as a friend and not an adversary," she said. "Although no amount of community service erases the pain of losing a child, Mike and I feel like we are doing exactly what Jake would have wanted us to do when we participate in these activities."

As in years past, the Jake Laird Community Day was paired with National Night Out, which is designed to:



• Heighten crime and drug prevention awareness;

• Strengthen neighborhood spirit and police-community partnerships; and

• Send a message to criminals letting them know that neighborhoods are organized and fighting back.
