Alpine police help children celebrate birthdays during social distancing

Police have offered to drop by the houses of children celebrating their birthday to say hello with lights and sirens.

ALPINE, Texas — The Alpine Police Department is doing its part to help children have a good birthday during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Social distancing has left many people unable to have a birthday party. To help fill that gap, people have put together parades or had people drive by and honk their car horns while driving by to wish happy birthday.

On its Facebook page, the Alpine Police Department told citizens if they had a child celebrating a birthday at home they could call the department to have a patrol unit drive by with lights and siren on to say happy birthday.

If you live in Alpine and would like to have a patrol unit drive by to wish your child a happy birthday, you can call 432-837-3486.
