Education & Tours
Tours for Children & Tours for Families with Children
The police department can provide children and groups with a tour of the police department while giving children an opportunity to meet with a police officer. The specific topics covered can be varied by request but typically cover a police officer's job and proper use of 911 along with specifically requested safety topics. The tour can also include a police vehicle with an opportunity for the children to sit in the back of the unit. Other topics that may be covered include bicycle safety, fingerprinting, stranger safety, online safety, and much more. Tours should be scheduled at least two weeks in advance with a minimum of 10 guests requested and a maximum of 30 people.
Please Be Advised
- Due to standing meetings and appointments, Wednesday evenings are not available for any tour or educational class schedule.
- For groups with children under the age of 6, there is a required 1 adult to every 2 children ratio and we cannot do tours of more than 10 children in that age group during normal business hours.
- If you schedule a tour during normal business hours, please ask your group to keep in mind that this is a working office building and during the tour, there are parts of the building where they will have to keep this in mind.
Safety Talks for Adults
Educational presentations can be arranged to discuss crime prevention, traffic safety, Leander city ordinances, senior citizen safety, self-defense, gun laws in the Texas Penal Code, and many other Law Enforcement Related Topics. Other topics may be available upon request. Talks are typically given at the Leander Police Department and should be scheduled at least two weeks in advance with a minimum of 10 guests requested. Our current training area holds a maximum of 30 people.
Please note: Due to standing meetings and appointments, Wednesday evenings are not available for any tour or educational class scheduling.
Police Department Visits at Other Locations
It may be possible for a police officer to come and visit an event off-site. These can be educational or question-and-answer in nature. A specific focal point usually works best, such as fingerprinting children, discussing neighborhood watch, etc. Such events have also included tips for general safety, internet safety, bullying, etc. Talks should be scheduled at least two weeks in advance with a minimum of 10 guests requested.
We may also be able to have officers visit your event or festival and set up information booths, bring a patrol car for the kids to see, and hand out stickers.
Please note: If the event is on a Friday or the weekend, please try to notify us at least a month in advance, as our weekends tend to fill up fast.
