This Saturday, May 13, Greenwich Police invite the community to “Police Day” at the Public Safety Complex. The event runs from 10:00am to 2:00pm rain or shine.
This is a great family event where kids can learn what it’s like to be part of Greenwich Police and some of the different jobs they have.
There will be a bouncy castle, free hot dogs and other events like a car seat installation station.
Also the Honor Guard and Police Explorers will team up with local Cub Scouts for a special American flag workshop.
Parents can also take part in the New York Life Child ID program by getting a Child ID card for their kids in mere minutes. The card has a child’s photo, fingerprints, contact information and other data that can be critical in case of an emergency.
If you’ve never toured the Public Safety Complex, it’s well worthwhile and tours will be available throughout the day.
Also, the police are holding a car show on Saturday from 10:00am to 2:00pm.
The family-fun event will include a DJ, a 50/50 drawing, food trucks, and more.
Admission is free to spectators and will include classic, antique, custom, and exotic cars, motorcycles, and vintage fire trucks.
The even raises money for the The Greenwich Police Department’s Scholarship Fund, a non-profit 501 (c) (3), grants financial assistance to the children of active Greenwich Police Officers who qualify by ability and character for undergraduate studies.
“The Scholarship Fund recognizes the achievements of qualified and deserving students of Greenwich Police Officers while honoring the dedication of the Officers themselves,” Chief Heavey said. “I can’t think of a better way for the public to thank Greenwich Officers for their commitment to our community.”
