"Safe return to school" – Arkadia organises family picnics.
Police picnics are held every year on the last weekend of summer holidays on Arkadia’s lawns to mark the beginning of a new school year. A junior traffic training centre, demonstration of police dogs and equipment plus competitions with prizes are only some of attractions traditionally offered to whole families.
Policemen familiarise children and young people with their equipment - placed around Arkadia’s greens are cruisers, motorcycles, boats, quads and even a mobile police station. Police dogs and horses parade in front of Arkadia’s guests. Policemen tell children how they should care for their safety on the way to school or on a journey. Events feature numerous competitions in which children can win the “Safety Master” title following proficiency tests. Permanent elements of the programme also include the presence of the Fire Department and a bus of the Municipal Bus Service. Ele Taxi also provides additional attractions for the youngest ones. The action, organised by Arkadia in conjunction with the Warsaw Police Department, combines fun and education – children and parents get lots of essential tips concerning safety in various situations: at school, on a journey or while shopping.
