Safety City is a Community Service Project of the Knoxville Police Department.

The objective of Safety City is to provide an early educational program for elementary school children (kindergarten-fourth grades). The program will teach children about vehicular, pedestrian, bicycle and fire safety. The skills taught at Safety City will empower youngsters with the ability to avoid needless accidents and instill good safety habits at an early age.

The concept of Safety City is one of providing "hands-on" safety education within a child-size setting complete with buildings, paved streets and sidewalks, working traffic signals and traffic signs. Students receive classroom instruction in basic pedestrian, vehicular, bicycle and fire safety. Then, students are able to practice and demonstrate their safety skills in participatory activities on the Safety City site. Participatory instruction can include pedestrian exercises, traffic activities through driving child-size vehicls and bicycle and fire skills.

Goals of Safety City

  • To provide a creative and safe environment where elementary students will have the opportunity to increase their knowledge and skills in pedestrian, vehicular and bicycle safety.
  • To reduce injuries and deaths resulting from motor vehicular related crashes
  • To reduce injuries and deaths resulting from fire
  • To provide other personal safety education programs as they develop

    During the school calendar year, second grade students attend Safety City as a school field trip. In the summer, groups of various ages 4-11 sign-up for classes and select from a menu of safety topics.
