Salinas Police Department Participates in Fantasy Flight 2018
Salinas Police Department will participate in Fantasy Flight 2018 sponsored by the Cops Care Cancer Foundation this coming Saturday December 8 in San Jose, Ca. Salinas PD will be providing a police escort to two Salinas families selected by the foundation to be part of this year's special event, which will take place at San Jose PD's hangar at San Jose Airport. The local families have children ages 7 and 13 who will be two of the many special guests.
Although Fantasy Flight has been around for years this is the first year Salinas PD is involved and we hope to support this worthy cause yearly. For more information on Fantasy Flight for next year's event, you can call 408 313-6877.
