The Amarillo Police Department Crime Prevention Unit provides a free service called "Officer Friendly". We will come to your school or any group with children and talk about seat belt safety, stranger danger, calling 911, and many other topics that children need to hear. This is a learning program for the children, but it also allows for them to get acquainted with police officers in their community. If you have a specific issue that you would like the officer to cover you can let them know when you call. The officer will also bring a police car along so that the children can get in and see whats inside, ask questions, and take pictures. If you would like an Officer Friendly program contact the APD Crime Prevention Unit at 378-4257.
