Rochester Police to host community open house

The Rochester Police Department on Saturday, June 2, will host a community open house and bicycle safety rodeo from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the police station, 400 Sixth Street, in Rochester. "This is a great opportunity for the community to see their police department," Rochester Police Chief Steve Schettenhelm said. "The bike safety rodeo offers kids the chance to make sure their bikes are safe, their helmets fit properly and learn some safety tips on our rodeo course.” The department will provide helmets to children who don't have one. The department also will be collecting non-perishable food for the Rochester Food Pantry. The department asks visitors to consider bringing food with them to add to the collection. Additional activities during the event include tours of the police station and vehicles; firearms demonstrations and free gun safety locks; evidence collection (CSI) demonstrations; child safety seat inspections; police motorcycle skills course demo; an unwanted prescription drop-off; free bike safety inspections; free bike helmets to children who need them; a homeland security helicopter viewing; and a K-9 demonstration with officer Knight and Kitt.
