The New Braunfels Police Department’s Annual Kops and Kids Safety Picnic happens every year in May at the Dance Slab and surrounding pavilions in Landa Park. The event serves as a kick-off to National Police Week and is designed to give local kids a chance to meet police officers in a fun, non-threatening environment to help develop relationships between officers and the community.
The event is always 100% free and features a variety of activities, including a SWAT Team Obstacle Course, a K-9 Demonstration, Fire Department apparatus, Kid Print child fingerprinting, jump castles, games and prizes, and a surprise laugh-filled challenge event between officers and kids.
The main event of the day is the very popular bicycle giveaway! Children must register the day of the event in order to be eligible to win one of the 100 or so bicycles that will be given away. And your registration also gets you and your family free hot dogs, chips, drinks, and other snacks.
This event could not be possible without the generous donations of local residents and businesses, and is always generously supported financially by the NBPD Citizens Police Academy Alumni Association.
We hope you and your family will join us for our next Kops & Kids Safety Picnic in Landa Park!
