Besides all the great vehicles and hands-on opportunities to observe police working with K-9s, learn about a roll-over simulator, and enjoy the Spider-Man combo, petting zoo and clown artist, and there is a brand new special agent game for kids and grand kids.

The Paradise Valley Police Department created a mission for kids to solve involving an elderly female who was admitted to the hospital, who had been walking with her dog and she lost her wallet. There will be many stations for kids to visit to identify clues, use critical thinking skills, and to eventually solve the mission while learning about how various public safety agencies and programs provided services to the incident.

The special agent game will teach skills and educate about services that are available in the community.

Meet first responders and ask all the questions you wanted to know about their jobs. They enjoy questions and teaching the next generations about their experiences.
