They failed to mention the reports coming from the teacher's lounge that all the doughnuts were missing. Witnesses say they spotted the cops leaving the area shortly before the incident was reported.

This is a great program. It lets kids see that police officers are not the "bad guy" and are good people that they can trust and respect. I can honestly say that Swansea has some of the best officers for a small PD. Chief Hayes has done a great job since taking over. Getting the officers involved in the community is another way to deter crime. Glad he's smart enough to relaize that. Keep up the good work, guys.

Say man, how about pulling that thing thats stuck up your rear and leave the police and the kids alone. Just because you are a failed speciman in society doesn't mean we have to listen to your sarcasm. Maybe you should have finished school instead.

That is a very good idea. My parents never teased me or taught me to fear the police or firefighters. My very first experience with both was at an early age - I left school and intended to walk home like the grownup I thought I was. I got about two blocks from school and was completely lost. I was lucky enough to find myself in front of the firestation. The guys there were very nice and were comforting because by that time, I was in tears. A policeman from the same building took me home.

I am getting tired of the derogatory comments about law enforcement and firefighters. There are good and bad in every group of people, but we would be in deep doo-doo if there were neither to help us when we need it the most.
