Kids Have A Blast At Picnic At The Precinct

By Sean Keeley · July 10th, 2011 · No Comments

Seattle Police held its “Picnic at the Precinct” on College Way this Saturday, an annual event when residents can meet the officers who patrol the North Seattle region. And perhaps best of all, kids get an inside-look at police work.

The mounted patrol is always a crowd favorite.

And so are the police robots, which are used to sniff out suspicious devices.

This lucky guy is getting a tour of a SWAT vehicle.

The event has been running since 2004, sponsored by the Seattle Police Foundation and local businesses. “Picnic at the Precinct events provide an opportunity for the business and residential communities in the precinct geographical boundaries to come together and enjoy a day to meet and interact with their local officers in a fun environment,” explains Detective Jeff Kappel.
