MPD Hosts Movie in the Park This Summer


The Mobile Police Department will host Movie in the Park this summer. On selected dates, family-friendly movies will play on the big screen at parks throughout the city of Mobile.

Movie in the Park flyerThe entire family should come out and enjoy a movie in the park. Bring the lawn chairs and blankets to relax on during the outdoor cinema experience. Snacks will be provided for everyone. Before the movie begins, families can visit educational booths and participate in entertainment activities.

Strengthening the bonds of communication between law enforcement and the community is a mission of the Mobile Police Department under the leadership of Chief Lawrence Battiste.
