The Panama City Beach Police Department held its 28th Annual Cops ‘N Kids event recently at Aaron Bessant Park.

The community outreach event allows residents and visitors to meet local police officers and closely examine first responder and military equipment, including specialized vehicles, helicopters, boats and a rollover simulator.

The Police Department provided free food, T-shirts and other giveaways. Ten bicycles were raffled off. The Breakfast Point Jazz Band performed, and McGruff the Crime Dog attended. The National Child Identification Program and a photo booth were on site. The Police Department and Tyndall Air Force Base K9s gave demonstrations.
