PUBLIC SAFETY CENTER

Police Officers and civilian employees of the Edmond Police Department have found themselves in a tight spot after years of growing as a Department to meet the needs of a growing city. The tight spot is due to the fact that they have outgrown just about every area of the Police Station.

The current site of Police Headquarters is a renovated City hall with a 2nd floor addition. The Police Department moved into this building in 1980 when Edmonds population was 34,600 and there were only 49 sworn Police Officers.

SANTA ON A FIRE TRUCK

The Edmond Kiwanis Club is planning Edmond's Second annual "Santa on a Fire Truck" toy collection for the HOPE Center. This year, Kiwanis plans to expand from three to six neighborhoods. Last year was a great success.

Edmond Kiwanis Member Charles Jorge from Oaktree Park Addition will again head up this project in partnership with Century 21 Goodyear Green, who own a 1950's era Fire Truck. Santa rides into the neighborhoods to visit younger residents. There is a special collection plan which collects toys for the Center and the kids.
