City of Fairfax police held their third annual Cops and Kids Day on July 18 and some 80 children attended. They heard about bike safety, saw a K-9 demonstration and learned about Animal Control and the Emergency Services Team.
“This event teaches children not to be afraid of the police and that we’re here to help them,” said Police Chief Carl Pardiny. “It also teaches our officers how to interact with children.”
