Spokane Police to host first-ever Jr. Police Academy event

The Spokane Police Department is partnering with River Park Square and Mobius Children's Museum at River Park Square to host Spokane's first Junior Police Academy event!

The event will be held on Saturday, Jan. 24, 2015, from 1-4 p.m. in the atrium of River Park Square.

Kids will have the opportunity to participate in several free, fun and educational stations:

  • Explore a real police patrol car
  • Talk with a K-9 officer and his K-9 partner
  • Dress up in police gear and take a photo
  • Color with a cop (police badge coloring pages provided)
  • Sign up with Operation Family ID* and get free identity packets for children

Children who complete at least three of the stations will receive official certification as a Junior Spokane Police Officer and a free day pass to Mobius Children's Museum.

The Jr. Police Academy will be a “first come, first serve” event with no sign-up necessary.

*Operation Family Identification (OFID) is a community service program directly tied to the Missing & Exploited Children Organization and Amber Alert. This program is administered by Spokane C.O.P.S. Identification kits include a digital photograph and fingerprints. In the event a loved one is missing, a family member can forward the critical information quickly to local law enforcement agencies for the production of flyers and media distribution.
