Andover children received a first-hand look Thursday at various town trucks and other vehicles.

The town's annual “Touch a Truck” program for children took place at the town park. Officials say approximately 100 youngsters had the opportunity to sit in town vehicles and have photos taken. Also on hand was McGruff, "The Crime Dog," to help Andover Police officers as they displayed police vehicles including a motorcycle at the event.
