Entries 1-6A

#1  Livermore Police Department
Following tradition, the first in our line-up is the Livermore Police Department. And at the head is our Police Chief, Mike Harris (who is also a Rotarian) in the 1954 Chevy. This car was originally donated to the LPD by the Altamont Cruisers for the DARE program. Now you can see the car at most community events and parades or simply driving around town.

We also have some of the LPD volunteers on bike patrol. The LPD utilizes citizen volunteers on bicycles to patrol the trails and parks throughout the city.

And here are some of the LPD Explorers, accompanied by Officer Justice. And Finally we have Officer Audrey Thompson and her partner K9 Bugsy. They are one of three K9 teams for the LPD.

Along with the Livermore Police Department is the California Highway Patrol. This is the largest accredited state police in the nation. Started in 1929, its mission is to provide the highest level of safety, service, and security to the people of California. The CHP reminds everyone not to drive impaired by alcohol or drugs, not to drive distracted by cell phone or passengers, and never ride in a car without your seatbelt fastened. The CHP wishes everyone a fun and safe summer!
