National Night Out is an annual community-building campaign that promotes police-community partnerships and neighborhood camaraderie to make our neighborhoods a safer, better place to live. This national program encourages citizens to have a block party, meet neighbors and help fight crime in their area. National Night Out is held annually on the first Tuesday in August.

The Police Department and the Windsor Optimist Club hold a community Bike Night event in the early summer each year. The evening kicks off with a family-friendly bike parade around Windsor Lake led by a bicycle patrol officer. After the parade, kids under 12 years old are invited to participate in bicycle safety stations: an obstacle course, bicycle registration, helmet giveaways, and helmet and bike safety checks.
Each year on Halloween, the Windsor Police Department and the Windsor Optimist Club join together and sponsor a Community Halloween Party! Fun games and safe treats for everyone!
The Town of Windsor Police Department works in partnership with the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), for National Drug Take Back Day. This program gives the public the opportunity to prevent pill abuse and theft by ridding their homes of potentially dangerous expired, unused, and unwanted prescription drugs. The service is FREE and anonymous, no questions asked. We typically hold Drug Take Back Day twice each year, once in the fall and once in the spring.
The Weld County Santa Cops program provides gifts to children with families facing challenging financial circumstances, provided through a community toy drive in December and January.
