The third annual Raytown Police Safety Fair was well attended. Police, Fire, Public Works, EMS, and the local ham radio club were some of the organizations with equipment on display and personnel to answer questions. An added bonus was a free hotdog, chips, cookie and a soft drink. It should be noted that while the Police Chief’s car looks fast, Chief Lynch opted for a 6 cylinder, gas saving model. A wise choice, since he is probably not called to do high-speed chases.
Here are a couple of photos and a quick video of the event.
