Tupelo Police Officers visit the Daycare and Learning Center at the Itawamba Community College (Tupelo Campus/Purvis Center) to give a presentation about Safety and how /when to use 911. The children were very responsive and enjoyed the interaction with officers. The students got to see a police car and received coloring books courtesy of Tupelo Police AthleticLeague. The students were left with certificates for their participation.
After the inside activities were complete the children went outside for a “Hands-On” experience with an actual Police Cruiser (courtesy of Officer Jason Whitenton). The children were allowed to examine a Tupelo Police car thoroughly and were overjoyed about having an opportunity to sit inside a Police Cruiser with the LED lights activated.
