Cops 'n Kids Day
Each year local law enforcement agencies from the Leesburg area combine forces to host Cops 'n Kids Day in an effort to foster stronger relations between our youth and law enforcement officers.
The event is for kindergarten through 5th grade youth and includes lots of fun, games, and food. Various community service organizations are usually on hand to provide messages about staying away from drugs, alcohol and tobacco. You might even find a clown or two.
The 2008 Cops 'n Kids Day was attended by law enforcement officers from the Leesburg Police Department, Fruitland Park Police Department, Lady Lake Police Department and the Lake County Sheriff's Office.
Junior Athletic Games
The Leesburg Police Department is proud to host the Junior Athletic Games each year at Leesburg High School. These games honor our community's aspiring athletes at the elementary school level. Elementary schools throughout the area participate by sending their best athletes to compete in the Junior Athletic Games. Participating schools include:

Each school sends a select number of participants for each of seven events that include:

Every participant receives a free Leesburg Police Department JAG t-shirt and the winners in each event receive a trophy. The event is a lot of fun and gives elementary students an opportunity to compete and show off their athletic talents.
