Busy Saturday

A lot of things are going on during what promises to be a beautiful weekend this coming Saturday and Sunday. We really hope you'll come out to Meet Your Police Department from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. tomorrow at the Metro Patrol Division Station, 7601 Prospect Ave. Attendees can enjoy a free lunch, learn crime prevention tips and check out the KCPD helicopter, Canine and Mounted Patrol sections, the mobile command post, Bomb and Arson Unit, crime scene investigators and show cars. The roll-over crash simulator will demonstrate the importance of wearing seatbelts. The Police Athletic League will have a golf cart and “beer goggles” to show how dangerous driving drunk can be. The Kansas City Police Historical Society will be on hand with interesting pictures and artifacts from the department’s 136-year history. The event also is a great chance to get to know the officers who protect and serve Kansas City, as well.

And don't forget about all the road closures associated with the Kansas City Marathon. Choose your route carefully Saturday and try to avoid the race area if at all possible.
