ST1Summer is just around the corner and so is the Hillsboro Police Safety Town! Designed for five and six year old children, Safety Town offers a week of learning and fun all wrapped in one!

Safety concepts are emphasized all week long, to include Personal, School Bus, Fire, Gun, Internet, Water, Animal, and Electrical safety, Poison and Ambulance awareness, Emergency Preparedness, Kindness and Kid Fit. The safety messages are introduced and reinforced through speakers, crafts, and music!

Kids will practice saying their name, address, and phone number, and calling 9-1-1 on a simulator.  They’ll also visit Safety Town as a driver and a pedestrian. While driving through Safety Town, kids must wear a helmet, buckle their seat belt, obey road signs, and yield to pedestrians.

Registration for five and six-year olds is done through Hillsboro Parks and Recreation.  The camp is limited to 48 kids, so register early!
