Every summer the Toledo Police Department sponsors the Safe-T-City Program at no cost. This program is held at the Scott Park Shelter House, 2201 Nebraska Avenue, next to the Scott Park District Station.
Safe-T-City is a child pedestrian and traffic safety program combined with a life safety course. This program is conducted for children entering kindergarten in the up-coming school year. Please note that 1st graders are not eligible for this program. Safe-T-City includes classroom instruction and outdoor practice in a miniature city complete with streets, sidewalks, small buildings, traffic lights and stop signs.
The children are assigned to classes (no more than 15 children per class) with a certified instructor. During the 20 hour course, the children learn through participation in a setting of simulated real-life situations. Guest speakers from different community resources help the children learn through songs, poems, art projects, stories, and movies. Police officers teach pedestrian safety on the streets of Safe-T-City. The different lessons provide an enjoyable learning experience.
The 2017 dates are:
