Dunkirk Police Officers Read to School 5 students

The Dunkirk Police Department for the fifth year is continuing its involvement with the Police Department Reader Day Program. Officers began in November reading to Dunkirk School #5 students.

Police Officers visit schools and read books to the children. As part of this program the Officers also spend time with the children explaining the job of a Police Officer, answering any questions the children may have and reminding them of some safety tips. 

This program helps to build a positive relationship with the children and let’s them become familiar with Police Officers in a positive setting. The program helps to make children more comfortable with Police Officers and hopefully build positive relationships in the future as well.

We again want to thank the Dunkirk City School District for working together with the Police Department with our programs in the Schools.
