On Wednesday August 11, 2021 the Barnstable Police Department along with the five Town of Barnstable Fire Departments hosted the Annual “Kids Day” Event at the Barnstable High School. This event allows children of all ages to see demonstrations, equipment, and vehicles from several different police and fire departments. K-9 demonstrations, SWAT demonstrations, these are just a few of the things kids had available. Families also enjoyed a hot dog and soda, followed by an ice cream that was all donated by local businesses. A parade of emergency vehicles, a bagpiper and the kid’s police academy started off the day’s event. In order for this to be all possible, we rely on local businesses, associations, and unions to assist with donations and volunteering. I want to express my sincere gratitude to the volunteers and donators below. A special thank you to the Barnstable Police Patrolman’s Union for their very large monitary donation and all of the patrolman that have volunteered year after year.
