Lunch With a Cop

These St. Helens school children get a visit from a St. Helens Police officer during their lunch.

Several organizations created National Law Enforcement Appreciation Day in 2015, including the International Associations of Chiefs of Police, to thank officers across the nation for the daily sacrifices they make for their communities.

During the local visit to the schools, St. Helens officers took time to chat with the students in a proactive approach to help the children better understand their role as police officers in the community.
