Last December, Rick Carlson hosted the Rolando Community Council (RCC) holiday party at the museum. Museum directors brought some of their historic police vehicles. Neighbors were amazed at the museum exhibits. Carlson once again has invited us to gather there for our neighborhood holiday celebration. So, if you missed last year, you have a chance to join our holiday gathering this year and enjoy the museum as well.
Museum president Rick Carlson will be there to share his experiences on the force. Carlson was a San Diego Police officer for 35 years and a Homicide Detective for 8 years. He also worked 15 years as a negotiator. For the last 5 years of his career he was assigned to the Violent Crimes Task Force. He will keep you spellbound with inside stories.
All Rolando residents are invited to join RCC in sharing holiday spirit at the museum on December 15th between 6:30 and 8:30 pm. Bring your good cheer and holiday treats to share.
If you have an interest in police work, consider volunteering at this local treasure.
