Reynolds Police Department Celebrates Safety Day and Ribs Cook-off

The Reynolds Police Department recently hosted Safety Day on the Parham Road Campus. Students, faculty and staff enjoyed a BBQ Ribs Cook-off along with a dunking booth, free vehicle identification etching and the Emergency Responders Job Fair.

As always, the BBQ Ribs Cook-off was a big hit as it pitted representatives from the Reynolds Police Department against several local first responders in the Open Division, while the college’s culinary arts students competed in the Student Division. Rib samples were available for free while supplies lasted.

“The rib cook-off is always one of the highlights of the year,” noted Reynolds Police Chief Paul Ronca. “It is a great way to engage and build relationships with local first responders and our students and is always competitively fun.”  

Henrico County Police Officer Aaron Lancaster won the Open Division, and the team of Reynolds students Ed Cary, Shakira Batts and Alex Stewart won the Student Division.

This year’s BBQ Cook-off contest might be over, but it is never too early to start preparing for the 2018 event!
