Books & Badges: Parsons Elementary School
Our event yesterday for the first graders at Parsons ES Elementary School was such fun. They were so engaged and happy for the Columbus Division of Police officers to be there. Zone 2 Commander Dave Hughes and 13 Precinct Officers Amanda Hoover and Nick Siers read Bad Kitty Does Not Like Snow to three classes of excited students.
Cmdr Hughes's class got an up-close look at his badge. Funny moment of the day: when a little girl in Ofc Hoover's class asked her, "Were you the officer chasing my mommy in her blue car?"
Ofc Siers happily reported that half the kids in his class wanted to be police officers and that one of the children wanted him to stay so badly that he wrapped himself around his legs. We love it!
