On June 9, 2016, the Fountain Valley Police Department held its first “School Bicycle Safety Program” at Cox Elementary, located at 17615 Los Jardines East.  The “School Bicycle Safety Program” is an educational program for third and fourth grade students on proper bicycle safety.  The one-day program consisted of FVPD Bike Patrol Officers who worked hands on with each participating student.  Officers presented a PowerPoint presentation, which highlighted topics such as the rules of the road, bicycle safety laws, and proper bicycle safety equipment. Participants then had the opportunity to complete a bicycle obstacle course while accompanied by a Bike Patrol Officer.  At the conclusion of the course, each student received a participation certificate, along with a new bicycle safety helmet

After the program, each student wrote an essay on what they learned.  The winner of the essay contest had the chance to win a brand new bike. Fourth grader Jimmy Romero from Mrs. Harvest's classroom won the contest!

On June 23rd, Senior Officer Frahm, FVPOA President Joseph Zane, and Lieutenant Sheppard presented the new bike to Jimmy which was purchased by the Fountain Valley Police Officers' Association.  Jimmy was so excited and said, “It was the best last day of school I have ever had.”  Way to go Jimmy and enjoy the new bike!
