National Walk to School Day - Walk with a Cop
On October 4th the West Wendover Police Department, in conjunction with the Nevada Highway Patrol, Elko County Sheriff and Elko County School District and staff participated in the National Walk to School day.
All participants met at the West Wendover High School at 7:30am prior to walking to the West Wendover Elementary School. Children had the opportunity to engage in discussions regarding traffic and pedestrian safety, stranger danger and bullying.
Officer Pete Turner assisted in organizing the event and said the turnout was much larger than expected for the first year. Turner said that he is looking forward to next year, and an even greater turnout.
