Sgt. Martin Garcia from the West Haven Police Department visited the St Lawrence kindergarten class at the end of October. Garcia spoke with the students about police work, specifically what a typical day is like at the police department.
He is the author of the children’s book entitled A Day at the West Haven Police Department. In the book, he describes the West Haven Police Department and includes pictures of what it looks like inside.
During his visit, Garcia read his book to the class, and took the students on a “tour” of the police department.
The students asked questions and talk with Garcia about what life is like inside the police department.
Garcia also made them honorary junior officers, and gave each student a “police badge” and pencil. The kindergartners also created police hats to go along with their badges.
