Central Elementary Students Surprised with New Bikes from Mentors

| January 7, 2019 | 0 Comments

San Diego Unified Police, along with San Diego Probation and San Diego Police Department officers, surprised third-grade students with brand-new bikes and a surprise visit from Santa, who landed at Central Elementary in City Heights via helicopter.

Approximately 30 students were involved in the gift-giving program. The uniformed police officers greeted the students and provided brand-new bicycles and helmets that were unveiled and presented to the students. After the presentation, the students and police mentors road bikes, completed a bicycle safety course, and enjoyed ice cream.

Now in its fourth year, the San Diego Unified Police “True Blue Buddies” program is a year-long, police-student mentorship program.

Police mentors show students how to properly fit their new helmets and bikes.
