Thomasville-- Thomasville Police Department put on their 5th annual safety expo at the high school today.  Law enforcement from Thomasville and the surrounding area came out to give demonstrations, and provide some fun activities for the kids.  

It's no coincidence they held the event the day before the school's prom.   "We hope they realize drinking and drugs is not for them and they'll have a good time they don't need the drinking and drugs. We hope they get that from the expo and the career fair also," said Joey Rollins, Thomasville police officer, and school resource officer.

In addition to demonstrations, many of the vendors were there to give students information on how to get into a career in law enforcement after graduation. Thomasville Police Department was happy with the event but hope next year, even more vendors will come out.
