Benefit Car Show raises money for Kirkland’s Youth Police Explorers program

More than 50 classic cars lined the street at the Justice Center Saturday for the Kirkland Police Department’s third annual Benefit Car Show. All proceeds from the event went toward Kirkland’s Youth Police Explorers program.

The explorers program consists of youths, ages 14-20, who volunteer with the Kirkland Police Department.

“Through law enforcement mentorship and civilian partnerships, Explorers receive hands-on training and practical demonstrations during their bi-monthly meetings, which occur on the 2nd and 4th Thursday evening of each month,” according to the department’s webpage. “Explorers’ duties, including volunteering in the City, provide real-life opportunities to serve the community, ranging from crime scene operations to security detail and crowd control at community events.”

The event raised $1,500, according to Patti Ball, executive assistant at the Kirkland Police Department.
