statefairclassic2On Saturday, September 26, 2015, officers and civil servants from the Dallas Police Department will participate in the 90th Anniversary of the Southwest Airlines State Fair Classic football game, which will be held at the State Fair of Texas.  DPD is honored to participate in this popular event as it greatly assists the department in furthering our citywide outreach efforts.  

In addition to the normal safety and traffic activities, the Department will partake in the State Fair Classic festivities in the following ways:

  • Photographs produced by Hadnot Photography will display officers on video boards, wearing their uniforms, contrasted with their fraternity, sorority, or college clothes.
  • Videos highlighting DPD programs will be displayed before and during the game.
  • Chief Brown and officers will escort the game trophy onto the field prior to kickoff.
  • Officer Charles Vaughn will perform “Lift Every Voice and Sing” during the pre-game activities.
  • DPD Vehicles will be displayed at field level during the game.
  • Officers will hand out safety information outside the Cotton Bowl before, during, and after the game.

On behalf of the Dallas Police Department, special thanks to Al Wash Entertainment and the State Fair of Texas for the opportunity and considerable support in assisting DPD in furthering our community outreach efforts.
