The Hurricane City Police Department works in conjunction with local schools and community groups to sponsor bike rodeos. The purpose of a bike rodeo is to teach the participants the proper way to ride and maintain their bicycle and the laws associated with riding a bicycle. Participants will complete a series of events designed to encourage better bike-riding skills.
During a bike rodeo, parents are also provided with information to document their children's bicycles. This information is maintained by the parent for use in case their child's bike is lost or stolen.
Our Citizens Academy is a program we use to let our community get to know a little bit more about the work we do in law enforcement. We hope that it helps give people a better appreciation for the complexity of the job we do. The academy is one night a week for 4 to 5 weeks. We cover topics ranging from traffic stops, DUI investigations, Use of Force, K9 and SWAT demonstrations, Crime Scene Investigation, and participants have a chance to use a scenario-based simulator. We'll be trying to hold one academy during the fall and another during the late winter/ early spring.

Hurricane Heroes is a program designed for 5 to 6 year olds that teaches kids about the dangers of strangers, drugs, peer pressure, home poisons, fire, etc. The Hurricane Police Department fully supports this important and informative program. Officer Friendly and P.C. are an important part of the curriculum. Officers also photograph and fingerprint participants as part of the Kid ID Program.
The Kids ID Program is a program sponsored by the Hurricane City Police Department to provide a photo ID card and fingerprint card of the children in our community to their parents. This program is to help parents prepare for the unthinkable. In times of crisis, difficulty in recalling critical identifying information regarding your child and obtaining a current photo is compounded by the stress of the situation. The goal of the Kids ID Program is to provide parents with the information law enforcement would need to locate and identify a missing child. Look for the Kids ID booth at such events as the Hurricane Valley Business Expo and local safety fairs.
The Neighborhood Watch Program is a nationally recognized program created to obtain citizen involvement in discouraging and preventing residential crime, securing their own homes and personal property, and reporting any suspicious activity to the police.
It was designed to encourage, citizens to be the eyes and ears of the Police Department without putting them in any personal danger or encourage vigilante actions. For more information regarding this program, please contact Officer Dan Raddatz at 435-635-9663, ext. 106.
