|Fifth annual public safety expo this weekend|
Louisiana State Police-Troop F has partnered with numerous other public safety agencies in an effort to promote public safety and relations within our communities by hosting the fifth annual Public Safety Expo at the Monroe Civic Center.
The event will be held from 9 a.m.-3 p.m. Saturday, July 14. There will be informational booths, displays and demonstrations from many different public safety agencies. The free event will be an opportunity for the public to meet with public safety-related organizations about their roles in northeast Louisiana's safety.
The event will include seat belt safety (full-size roll-over demonstrations), fire safety, bicycle safety, 911 system, boating safety, K-9 units, motorcycle units, mobile command units, boats, impaired driving demos (Fatal Vision goggles), bomb units, traffic enforcement, helicopters (police and medical), EMS units, SWAT demos, free car seat checks, and other demonstrations from numerous agencies.
This event is made possible from numerous contributions, but special thanks to the City of Monroe and the Monroe Civic Center for providing an ideal, air-conditioned location. The Louisiana Trooper's Foundation and Century Link Security Systems were instrumental in providing resources and funding so this event could be offered free to the public.
There will be giveaways, door prizes and refreshments.
