Local Police Host Safe Skate

Posted:

Danville, VA - The Safe Skate program helps kids get to know the men and women who serve on the Danville Sheriff's Office and Danville and Pittsylvania County Police Department.

Kids from all over the Southside came out Monday to skate and raise money, but not for the officers. All the proceeds go to the Special Olympics, and officers say it's a benefit for the parents too.

"Pretty much a good opportunity for the parents to get a little relief from the kid's spring break and a chance for our youth to interact with the local law enforcement agencies," said Matthew Wyatt with the Danville sheriff's office.
