The Pleasanton Police Department has announced the return of the trading card program along with a new accompanying contest.
The aim of the trading card game is to introduce Pleasanton's police officers to members of the community and strengthen their relationships with youth, Crime Prevention Officer Shannon Revel-Whitaker said in a press release.
The game is played by collecting cards from participating Pleasanton Police Department employees. The department will announce opportunities for collecting trading cards through its social media platforms.
Pleasanton youths who collect all 41 cards can enter a drawing for prizes. Prizes vary and can include riding with officers in the Hometown Holiday Parade, autographed trading card posters and other giveaways.
The contest runs through Dec. 31. Official game boards are available at the Pleasanton Police Department's front desk, 4833 Bernal Ave. These boards are required for contest entry.
Contestants must live or attend school in the city of Pleasanton and be 18 years old or younger. To enter the prize drawing, players must collect all the cards featured on the game board, then bring the cards and board to the police department. Public officials, city employees, police department volunteers and their family members are ineligible to compete.
