Columbus Division of Police Officer James Poole makes friends everywhere he goes, and he promised one of them that he would visit his classroom to do a Books & Badges reading. The youngster was so excited that he went to school and told his teacher about it before Officer Poole even had a chance to contact her. She wasn't sure if he actually had a police officer friend or if he was playing around, but it's true! He does!
That's how Officer Poole and his partner, Officer Dave Blubaugh, read to a great class of very excited first graders at Easthaven Elementary this week. Every child received a copy of the book to take home, thanks to our sponsor, and they were able to ask the officers questions about their work. Officer Poole said the class was phenomenal--so polite and asked questions like adults would. Even their amazing teacher was impressed with how well-behaved they were.
