TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

The Tucson Police Foundation and AdoptACop.com program is hosting the first annual Kids Back to School Safety Fair.

The event will take place at Park Place Mall on Saturday, August 24, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Kids (school ages Kindergarten through 12th grade) can receive a free school bag and school supplies and parents can pick up a free fingerprint kit.

TPD will also provide valuable safety presentations on various safety topics such as Child Internet Safety, Safe Teen Driving, and much more.

SWAT, K9, and Bomb units will make appearances throughout the day.

As part of the AdoptACop.com program, there will be a very special on-stage presentation at 11:30 a.m. when several Tucson Police officers will receive new ballistic vests.

The vests are being provided courtesy of the Tucson Police Foundation and are made possible by donations from businesses and individuals in the community.

A full schedule will be posted on the Tucson Police Foundation website at www.tucsonpolicefoundation.org
