Safety City


Each year in the early weeks of summer, members of the Waukee Police Department host Safety City for students entering kindergarten at the Waukee Community School District. Students learn about safety from officers and volunteers during this week-long course. Topics include safe street-crossing, safety belt usage, 911, bus rules and more. The cost is $50 per student. A short graduation ceremony at the end of the week allows parents to help celebrate everything their children have learned. Each student attendee receives a bicycle helmet and t-shirt.
