Officers Plan ‘Monster Jam’ Field Trip for Road Home Kids

The Salt Lake City Police Department, in conjunction with Feld Entertainment, will be escorting children from The Road Home to a Monster Jam® truck rally Friday night.

In addition to watching the likes of Gravedigger, Monster Mutt and Bounty Hunter mix it up on the dirt track, the children will meet drivers from the show and enjoy a pre-rally Little Caesars pizza party in the VIP room at Energy Solutions Arena.

Officers began holding monthly activities for children whose families are living at The Road Home as a way to build positive relationships with at-risk youth. Since early 2009, they have arranged trips to the zoo, the Circus, Disney On Ice events, even a night at the movies.

Monster Jam® is the world’s premier monster truck series, with more than 4 million fans attending events at the world’s most prominent arenas and stadiums. Monster Jam® shows consist of three main elements – the pit party, side-by-side racing and freestyle.

Reporters are invited to cover the pizza party with the kids. Call Leslie Hart, (435) 467-0833, for admittance instructions.
