El Dorado County Sheriff's Office - "We will be holding our next Badges and Books event on Wednesday... Deputy Fontana and his K9 partner will be reading, doing crafts and providing hot chocolate. We can't wait to see you there!"

This program brings uniformed Law Enforcement officers into the community to build a strong relationship with children by interacting and answering questions.  The goal being that future generations of this community will be comfortable interacting with emergency responders in every capacity.

Often when children are exposed to police officers, it is during a time of stress or tragic experience as officers respond to emergency calls for service. During the chaos, there is not much time to build rapport with the youth on scene,” said SLTPD Officer Traci Trapani. “The community storytime is a chance for children to get to know our officers in a fun environment with time to ask officers questions.”

This is a Free Public event.
