Police to strengthen their relationship with local youth

October 24, 2012

WOONSOCKET -- The city's education department, Head Start Child Development Association and police department announce a new partnership that will bring youth and the police closer together.
Members of the police department will go to local elementary schools and the Woonsocket Head Start Child Development Association once a month and read to students as well as answer questions about what it is like to be a police officer. All three organizations believe this will build positive relationships and emphasize the importance of reading, a skill that is critical not only to teachers and students but police officers as well.
