NEEDLES — Skate park users are asked to join forces with the San Bernardino County Sheriff Department’s Colorado River Station from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, May 18, at the Needles Skate Park, in Duke Watkins Park along J Street.

The event promises limited quantities of free skate safety equipment and free food distributed on a first-come first-served basis plus a chance to win a custom handmade longboard and other prizes.

All can get a closer look at the department’s patrol cars, off road vehicles and other equipment. The goal is to foster cooperation between deputies and skate park users to make the park a crime free zone.
