The Clarksville Police Department, Citizen’s Police Academy Alumni, Montgomery County Sheriff’s Department, Fort Campbell MP’s, and TWRA officers are holding their 3rd Annual Kids and Cops event at Kmart (2780 Wilma Rudolph Blvd) on Saturday, October 10, 2009 from 10:00 am till 2:00 pm. It offers residents of all ages to meet local law enforcement in a social type environment. It also offers law enforcement an opportunity to showcase some of their equipment and to interact with children and adults alike. Officers will also be on hand conducting free Car seat inspections.
The Clarksville Tactical Response Team, garbed in black uniforms, was clustered about the response truck. “Bob,” he CPD’s bomb-sniffing robot was availabble for public inspection — something that appealed greatly to young children enamored of robots and movies like the recent “Wall-E.” The Mounted Police were on hand, allowing youngsters to hop up for a quick picture taken with a mounted officer astride several of the department’s magnificent horses. The canine division brought its dogs to meet and greet the public. – A description of the 2008 “Kids & Cops” event
