Officer Houlihan met with Ms. Lynn’s and Ms Saha’s elementary classrooms. Officer Houlihan spoke with the students about all of the things that police officers do in the community. She explained to the children that they should not be afraid of police officers, but should go to them when they need help! She then spent about 20 minutes answering questions from the students.

At the end of the visit, Officer Houlihan passed out free CHPD pencils and bookmarks for the students as a gift for welcoming her. View photo gallery
