Entries #1 through 9

#1  Livermore Police Department
Following tradition, the first in our line-up is the Livermore Police Department.  Two members of the Citizens on Patrol team lead the parade on bicycles. These volunteers patrol both bike and walking trails and report suspicious circumstances or assist citizens as needed. The marching group is the Livermore Police Department Explorer Program. This program provides career-oriented training for young adults contemplating a career in the criminal justice field. They experience a personal awareness of the criminal justice system through training, practical experiences, and community interaction.  This 1954 Chevy was restored and donated to the Livermore Police Department by the Altamont Cruisers. The car is used at community events such as National Night Out, Halloween Trick or Treat and a variety of other events. In the car I see Chief Mike Harris (who is a Rotarian!) and Crime Prevention Specialist Nicole Aguon.
And we have Fin, a recently retired K-9 and the LPD mascot, "Officer Justice."
