CPD hosts 5th Annual Child Safety Fair

The Conway Police Department reached out and promoted safety to local children during its Fifth Annual Child Safety Fair on Saturday.

 

The fair was held from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Conway Exp Center. CPD spokesman LaTresha Woodruff said about 575 stopped by Saturday.

Children were able to meet CPD officers, Faulkner County Sheriff's Office deputies and other Faulkner County first responders.

Several demonstrations were onsite, including a bit on bicycle safety.

CPD officers also read to children at the event.

Woodruff said this year's fair was a success.

"Thanks to everyone who came out to the Child Safety Fair," she said.

The police department immediately received feedback from the public following the event. Woodruff said families shared their joy of their experience at the fair.

"We are already getting feedback from parents saying their children thoroughly enjoyed it," she said. "That means we accomplished what we set out to do, connect law enforcement and first responders to children in our community. We hope we were able to develop some new relationships and nurture current ones. See you next year!"
