WFPD Take Part in White Cane Day

Members in the Wichita Falls Police Department participated in the National White Cane event with the Visually Impaired members in the community Wednesday.

Three officers with the force were challenged to walk one mile blindfolded with a white cane.

White Cane Safety Day celebrates blind and visually impaired people's achievements in the United States every October.

It is also used to remind people about how the white cane is an important tool in helping the blind and the visually impaired live with greater independence.
