Cocoa with a Cop @ Central Mall Food Court

Date: Saturday, December 2, 2017
Time: 9:00am to 11:00am
Location: Central Mall Food Court 5111 Rogers Ave Fort Smith, AR

Bring the children out on Saturday, December 2 for Cocoa with a Cop in the Central Mall Food Court! We will have local police officers available to answer all the questions they may have as we head into the busy holiday season. We will also have Kid Print here to create a Child Identification Card for your little ones!

The kidprint ID program is a high-tech tool that gives law enforcement and other community organizations virtually instant access to pertinent demographic information, as well as a recent photo, which is too often hard to find in situations when children go missing.

There will also be free hot chocolate and cookies from Great American Cookies. The event will provide a great opportunity for community members to interact with police officers and learn about holiday safety.
