The Ann Arbor Police Department is working hard to make children feel a bit more comfortable in what can be a scary place: the police station. Entering through security, many strangers, and police officers walking around with guns can all contribute to making children very nervous. To help children, the police department has added a Children’s Nook complete with books and stuffed animals. A safe space for children to read and relax. It has been so successful thus far that the police department is seeking donations of new stuffed animals for the Children’s Nook to give to children.
New stuffed animals can be donated at the Ann Arbor Police Department’s 301 East Huron Street location at the front desk on the second floor.
