Child Safety Day June 10, 2023
The Tiverton Police Department is hoping you'll join us on Saturday, June 10th from 11am to 3pm at Grinnell's Beach and Stonebridge Commons for our 5th annual public/child safety and wellness day!!
Join officers of the Tiverton Police Department and special guests to help raise money for local charity yet to be determined. The rain date for this event is Sunday, June 11th, 2023. The purpose of TPD hosting this event is for the opportunity for kids to celebrate the closing of the school year while they get familiarized and comfortable interacting with first responders within their community!
The Injury Prevention Center in partnership with SafekidsRI and Safekids Worldwide will be on hand conducting a child safety seat checkpoint where parents can ensure their children are traveling safely in their motor vehicles. Certified technicians will assist parents in checking their child safety seats, as well as, educating parents about the best practices regarding child safety seat installation.
Numerous agencies, such as, the Tiverton Police and Fire Departments, the RI National Guard, as well as, RISP will be on hand to educate parents and children in order to prevent injuries and save lives!
There will be plenty of opportunities for all children in attendance to not only have tons of fun, but also the chance to win brand new bicycle (a total of four bicycles will be awarded through random raffle drawings before the closing of the event)! As well as numerous raffle baskets not only for kids, but for all you Moms and Dads as well!
It is highly encouraged that children bring their bicycles to the event so they can complete the bicycle rodeo (a bicycle safety course...we will have bikes on hand for kids to use if they don't bring one) put on by RI Bikes.org. Those who successfully complete the course will be recognized by the Tiverton Police Department and presented with a voucher for a free ice cream cone from the Moose Café.
Children will also be provided the opportunity to climb in and on various vehicles, such as police, fire, military and construction vehicles.
