Thousands of Families and kids on the Central Coast headed to Arroyo Grande today to get a taste of what it's like to be a cop.
It was the annual Cops N' Kids Day from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. At Soto Field. Displays from police departments, bomb squads, SWAT and many more were out for the kids. The event was free.
Everyone who attended got free hot dogs, face painting, and a t-shirt.
Footprinters sponsors the event in hopes that people can walk in a cop's shoes.
"It gives the community and families an opportunity to meet one on one and face to face with their law enforcement community, and interact with them," said Jay Conner, Chapter President of Footprinters.
Cops N' Kids has been an annual event for the last 18 years.
