Officers distributed reflective snap bracelets, as well as Cops for Kids pencils and Easter treats to every classroom.

“It gave us an opportunity to go out and talk to kids in classrooms, to talk about police being their friends and to emphasize the safety aspect of them traveling in cars and being out on the road,” said Glendale Police Sgt. Ben Bateman.
