Paso Robles

Officers, dispatchers and community service officers at the Paso Robles Police Department recently spent time with students at Kermit King Elementary School.

At the invitation of kindergarten teacher Emma Marziello, officers read to the students and answered questions about the police department and what they do.

“I want the students to learn how police officers help out the community and fight crime. I want them to know that police officers are good, that they shouldn’t be afraid of them, and should be respected,” said Marziello.

The event was part of the department’s Police and Community Together program and philosophy.
