Kick off the first day of fall by attending the Fremont Police Safety Fair on Saturday, September 22 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Members of the Fremont Police Department will showcase police vehicles including their vintage 1958 Chevy, the City of Fremont Police/Fire mobile command vehicle, traffic motorcycles, SWAT vehicles, and many more. The event will take place in the large parking lot just west of the police campus (between the police building and the Fremont Main Library).
Several public agency partners will be participating, including the City of Fremont Transportation Engineering Division and Fremont Fire Department, Alameda County Sheriff’s Office, BART Police, the California Highway Patrol, AC Transit, and the East Bay Regional Parks Police Mounted Unit.
The Police Department’s Communications Unit will be co-hosting a dunk tank with Special Olympics Northern California. For a small donation, attendees can attempt to dunk a police department employee to help raise funds for Special Olympics athletes.
This free event has something for community members of all ages and will feature more than 30 exhibit booths, food, activities, free crime prevention seminars, and giveaways. The first 1,500 attendees will receive a special Fremont Police reusable grocery bag.
Formal presentations are planned and will be conducted by Fremont Police detectives and subject matter experts. Topics will include video camera surveillance; fraud/identity theft; burglaries; and social media safety.
A sampling of vendor exhibits will include US Alarm, RING, NextDoor, Hers Breast Cancer Foundation, Special Olympics Northern California, Washington Hospital, and many more.
