Cops N Kids picnic brings on summer

Once again, the Orange County Sheriff's Office is starting summer off for kids with the annual free big shebang at Claiborne West Park. The 28th Annual Sheriff's Office Cops N Kids picnic is set for Friday, June 7, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Sheriff Jimmy Lane Mooney and the employees in the sheriff's office have been working to carry on the kid-friendly event that brings together first responders from across the area, along with local businesses and civic clubs.

Kids and their families will get free hot dogs, chips, drinks, and watermelon. There will also be free rides, games, and activities. But the most fun usually comes from the children getting to talk to all kinds of first responders and see the vehicles they use.

The first responders will include all law enforcement agencies in Orange County like deputies, city police officers, and constables. Also, there will be game wardens from Texas Parks and Wildlife, who show off boats and airboats. The U.S. Coast Guard has previously had boats.

Ambulances, fire trucks, and other unique items used by first responders will be on display. Sometimes, there's even a helicopter.

Claiborne West Park is owned and maintained by Orange County. It is along Interstate 10 West, west of Cow Bayou.
