9-1-1 for Kids
The La Palma Police Department has implemented a 9-1-1 for Kids program. This program is designed for kindergarten and first grade students to learn when, why, and how they initiate an emergency 9-1-1 call. Taught by a dispatcher, the program is presented at each of our three elementary schools.
