We consider children to be our greatest national treasure.
Teaching respect of people and property is important to their personal growth and well being.
The American Police Motorcycle Museum is a bully-free area where children will be free to explore and discover all the museum has to offer.
On Saturday July 9th 2012, the 300th Junior Motor Officer received his badge and ID card at the museum. Since we opened our doors in 2011, we are very proud of the 300 young boys and girls who have joined the Junior Motor Officer Corps and decided on their own to take the Junior Motor Officer pledge.
Our 300th Junior Motor Officer is a very pleasant young man named Timmy who came to the museum on a BMW with his dad Charlie. Timmy received his badge and ID card from Kristen Gaffey, the educational coordinator at the museum. We wish father and son the best this summer and in years to come.
Junior Motor Officer
Every child that enters will be given an opportunity to become an American Police Motorcycle Museum Junior Officer.
A specially designed badge and ID card will be issued to each child. There will also be a simple pledge that every child who wishes to become a Junior Motor Officer must take.
Junior Motor Officer Pledge:
- To be respectful and kind to all
- To read every night for one half hour
- To obey and respect your parents
Every child who successfully completes the Junior Motor Office Pledge will then be allowed to put on a Motor Officer uniform and have their picture taken on a 1948 Laconia Police Motorcycle.
There is also a coloring table for Junior Officers to color sheets with positive police/child images that they can take home.
