Going to the Police Station!

Yesterday, we went to the Newport Beach Police Station with our homeschool group. outdoor-group-picThe tour started by seeing the Chief of Police who was passing by.  

The police are very important because of all the things they do and lives they save!

Then, we visited the shooting range. We weren’t able to go in because the rangemaster wasn’t there. The police have to go in and practice every six weeks. shooting-range-room The next stop was a room where the people in jail could talk to their family. newport-beach-pd-and-book-pix-072 After that, we visited juvenile hall. It looked very boring.

Just a picture. We did nothing bad.

 The only jail cell we visited was one with just a toilet and a water fountain above it. (No, the water fountain’s water is not hooked up to the toilet.) Finally, when we were walking to the 911 room we saw an officer who showed us what was on his belt.

 It had ammunition, a gun, his phone and a taser. We did go to the 911 room after he finished showing us what was on his belt. There was a delay because they were in the middle of a 911 call. The room looked really cool. 911-room-learning There were a lot of computers and a TV showing something with Donald Trump. The workers were calling through their computers. If you’re calling 911 from a cell phone, you should know where you are. Otherwise, they won’t know and it will take longer. We finished in the room where the tour started. On the steps of the police station we took some pictures. The field trip was very fun.
