The Covid-19 pandemic has taken away a lot of nice traditions because of the need for social distancing. It’s good when some of those traditions can be restored, even if it means using a different method.
The Thief River Falls Police Department was recently approached by a grandmother who wanted to make her grandchild’s birthday special.
We spoke with Deputy Chief Jaeger Bellows and he mentioned how so much of a child’s birthday depends on friends and family which is currently prevented by social distancing due to the Covid-19 pandemic. The Thief River Falls Police will drive by your elementary-age child’s birthday and sound their squad car sirens. They have plans to perhaps offer even a few more things. It is a great way to remind a child that it is their very special day.
The Thief River Falls Police Department has already had a request for a birthday visit which they fulfilled on Wednesday. We asked Deputy Chief Bellows how parents should contact the police department in order to set-up the special visit. He said people should call him at 218-683-7074.
