HERE COMES OUR PARADE! Following tradition, the first in our line-up is the Livermore Police Department Motor officers are from the LPD Traffic Unit, which concentrates on traffic education and enforcement.

The car is used at community events such as National Night Out, Halloween Trick or Treat and a variety of other events. Inside is Police Chief Mike Harris, who is also a Rotarian, and Crime Prevention Specialist Nikki Aguon, who is also the LPD Volunteer Advisor. And the marching group here is the Police Explorers.
