TUCKAHOE, N.Y. -- In its continued effort to reach out and be an active part of the community, the Tuckahoe Police Department has organized the 11th annual Community Day, which will see officers competing alongside local children in a series of events.
The theme of Community Day will be safety and forming cohesive relationships between residents and the department tasked with protecting them. There will be safety-inspired giveaways, and members of the police will square off against members of the community in a softball and kickball game.
Community Day kicks off from 11 a.m.-12:30 p.m. Saturday, June 28, with Safe Riders Day, when children can ride their bikes on village streets in a safe, contained environment. From 11 a.m.-2 p.m., there will be a child safety seat demonstration that will provide safety tips for children and parents.
Continuing the theme of bike safety, there will be a bike inspection and repair station, bicycle registration, safety and obstacle courses.
Cops and kids take the field beginning at 12:45 p.m., with the Cops for Kids kickball game. It immediately precedes the Cops for Kids softball game, which will have a 2 p.m. first pitch.
All events will take place at the Parkway Oval near Bronx Street and Consulate Drive in Tuckahoe.
