Vacation Safety School has proven to be a SUCCESS! Two VSS sessions are held each summer, children from ages 7 to 10 years of age have a one week session and then children 11 to 15 years of age attended a separate session. The children are taught about gun safety, poison control, gang awareness, K9, home alone safety, anti-bullying, drug prevention, internet safety, and much more. The City of Deer Park Parks and Recreation Department taught water safety and the Deer Park Fire Department taught the children about fire safety and first aid. We also joined forces with Harris County Sheriff's Office, Texas Parks and Wildlife, Life Flight, Pasadena Police Department, La Porte Police Department, Harris County Constable Office Precinct 8, BACODA, and Poison Control to get the children involved in various aspects of those departments as well.
The Deer Park Citizen's Police Academy Alumni members volunteer their time to help with the events.
The Deer Park Police Department Crime Prevention goals are to reduce crime and to educate the citizens of our community through crime prevention programs and key partnerships.
