Police Put On A Show At F.N. Brown


Share post:

Verona Police Officer James Barry talks about the importance of wearing a bike helmet.

The Verona Police Department reported to F.N. Brown elementary school this past Friday–to teach kindergarten and first grade students about bike safety and a whole lot more.

The event, which also included representatives of the Essex County Sheriffs Office, was held in conjunction with National Police Week. The kids got to sit in a squad car (and look under the hood!) and ask a lot of questions about what the police do and why. And judging by the photos sent in by Verona Police Officer Joel A. Martin, who also runs the drug and alcohol awareness program D.A.R.E. in Verona, the kids had a lot of fun, too.

We’ve loaded the rest of the photos of the day into an album on MyVeronaNJ’s Facebook page.
