On April 16, 2012 the Dickinson Police Department participated in
the Galveston County Fair and Rodeo’s Special Children’s Day. Smiles and
stickers were everywhere! Here the smiles of brothers Juan and Jose Mendoza from
San Leon Elementary School make it all worthwhile for Officer Wayne Stuart and
Officer Tony Valdez by Officer Stuart’s Beat the Heat 55 Chevy dragster.
Dickinson Health and Safety Fair
a Huge Success!
On May 22, 2010 anyone who was in the vicinity of the VFW on Hwy in Dickinson
saw the PHI medical helicopter and the US Coast guard helicopter land in the
field behind the hall. It wasn’t a drill and it wasn’t an emergency. It was part
of the Health and Safety Fair organized by the Dickinson Police Department and
sponsored by the University of Texas Medical Branch, JSC federal Credit Union,
the North County Chamber of Commerce, and the VFW Post 6378. The fair featured
about sixty health related booths that offered everything from free screenings
for strokes to weight loss and exercise programs. The Safety side of the fair
had about forty participants and featured special demonstrations by the
Galveston Police Department SWAT Team and the Galveston County Sheriff’s Office
Marine Division and Dive Team. Food vendors offered mouth watering treats of
barbeque sandwiches or plates, twisted fries, Italian Ices, snow cones, and
cakes. The highlight of the Fair was the raffling of items donated by each
vendor and the drawing for ten bicycles and a Wii station.
