Bike Rodeo

Officers Torres and Shaw from the Pottawatomie County Sheriff’s Department hosted a Bike Rodeo at McCormick Elementary School.  Officer Torres received a grant through the Safe Kids Program to promote bicycle safety.

Students first listened to a presentation to help them understand the importance of bike safety and maintenance.  Everyone then went outside and had the opportunity to be fitted with a bike helmet, have their bicycles checked over, practice hand signals, and register their bicycle.
