Safety City

Safety City is a no-cost safety education program designed for elementary age children in second grade. Lexington Police Department instructors provide information on a range of topics which run the spectrum of safety concerns. These currently include traffic, pedestrian, bicycle, seatbelt and firearm safety. Instruction is given in an age appropriate manner and provides children with the information they need to be safer in their community.

Safety City features a student-sized roadway with traffic signals that students utilize while driving our special cars. Miniature buildings replicating the community make up the “city” in Safety City. It is complete with a police station, restaurant and fire station.
