Officer Friendly Program

The Officer Friendly program is one of the most requested programs by the Community. Most residents recall their first interaction with Law Enforcement in elementary school, when Officer Friendly and his pal, McGruff visited their school. The visits left a lasting positive impression on students. Studies have shown that a positive interaction, with value-based resource information, has contributed to positive decision making by youth. 

Teaching youth basic crime prevention and self-protection techniques helps keep them from being victims of crime. By interacting with youth at an early age, it allows Law Enforcement to build a positive relationship with lasting effects.
