One of the main joys of public safety work is the friendly interactions we get to have with our community every day. Unfortunately, due to the COVID-19 outbreak, our regular visits, tours, and activities with students and children have all been suspended. So, to try to support all the parents navigating virtual learning at home and dealing with closed daycares, we’re coming up with ways Officers and Firefighters can engage with kids online.
Stay tuned, we’re working on some videos that we will share here and on our Police and Public Safety social media accounts.
Have ideas for videos and activities you would like to see? Please let us know! Send us a message on Facebook, Twitter or email firstname.lastname@example.org with your suggestions!
You’ve got our number, call anytime. We’re here to serve.
Fingerprint Investigation Activity
Want to learn how our Detectives investigate a crime scene? Join Sgt. Julie Beard as she shows you how to fingerprint at home using a few common household items. This activity is great for K to 4th grade, but younger Junior Detectives may need a little help from an older Detective.
For this activity you will need the following supplies:
piece of white paper
something smooth, like a glass, mug or plate
some kind of brush (paint brush, make-up brush etc.)
roll of clear, wide tape (packing tape works best)
gloves (optional) and a table or area that can easily be cleaned up
