On Friday, March 30th, the Dudley Police Department participated in another High Five Friday. Officers paid a visit to Dudley Elementary School to offer High Fives to students on their way into school on the half day before Easter. Chief Steve Wojnar tells THE LAKE 940 the goal of this program is to promote positive interaction with school children and police officers.
In addition, a police presence at the school helps to add to the sense of security for faculty, students and parents.
This program enhances many of the positive collaborations with the local schools and the Dudley Police Department. School Resource Officer Phil Megas worked to coordinate this event. The plan is to continue these at other schools in town at various times during the year.
The Dudley Police Department thanked Principal Diane Seibold and Superintendent Gregg Desto for their assistance promoting various initiatives throughout the years.
