A "Little" Visit to the Atherton PD

These kids have it all under control.....
First day on the job and they have it down!

A Police station field trip is educational and fun for kids of all ages. Just ask these little guys...


Over the weekend two Atherton toddlers and their kid sister suited up in full police gear and came to City Hall to learn about their Police Department.

Sergeant Kockler and Officer Dunphy gave the children a tour of the Police Department and of the Department vehicles.

3 kids

These little tykes learned all about the police motorcycles and pursuit vehicles. They saw where officers store their equipment and what is needed to carry out their daily tasks.

The kids were taught how the vehicles sirens work, and they were even allowed to sit on the motorcycles and inside the police pursuit vehicles!

The tour also led the children through the dispatch center, showing them how the station handles emergency calls.

One of the primary things kids learn on a police station field trip is personal safety. They will learn how to call 911 in an emergency, ways to protect themselves and how to avoid dangerous situations.

The Atherton Police Department encourages parents to schedule an appointment through the Police Department anytime they wish to participate in an educational  tour of the Police Department facilities.

We look forward to seeing you!
