The Tinley Park Police Department is holding its 2016 Coloring Contest for children in kindergarten through fifth grade. This year’s contest features the theme, “Be a Friend, Don’t Be a Bully: Stick Up for Someone” and depicts a cartoon cat defending a girl dog from a boy dog. Students must attend a Tinley Park school during the 2016-2017 year, and only one entry per child will be accepted. The entry form is available by clicking here
and, once completed, should be mailed or dropped off to the Tinley Park Police Department, 7850 W. 183rd St. by Monday, July 11.
A winner from each grade level will be announced. Students who are chosen will receive a ride to school in a police car during the first week of classes.
