Teaching Children How to Get To & From School Safely
Each summer the Thiensville Police Department offers Safety Town for children starting kindergarten in the fall. The children are instructed on how to get to and from school safely.
The Safety Town Experience
Part of the Safety Town experience involves driving small cars in a small town. The children learn by driving the cars, by walking on the sidewalks and following street signs. Some of the Safety Town topics include:
Important lessons are learned through music, videos, activities, and guest speakers. Teenage instructors assist the police officers for the two weeks of the course. The program ends with a final evaluation experience and a graduation ceremony.
Registration & Program Details
The 2020 Safety Town program has been canceled. Class materials are being made available to families whose children would have enrolled this summer. Please contact Investigator Glenn Janzer to obtain a set of materials.
