WES Pre-K Students Become Junior Sheriffs

There’s some new junior sheriffs in town! On Thursday, March 3, Wellington Deputy Dwayne Brown visited pre-K students at Wellington Elementary School. Brown spoke to the students about the role of a police officer and how to stay safe. The deputy showed the students the tools on his belt and explained what they were used for. Brown also spoke about bicycle safety and the importance of wearing a bicycle helmet when riding a bicycle. The students asked many questions. He then took them outside to see his car. The kids were wide-eyed as they each got a turn and climbed into the back seat of the patrol car, noticing the gadgets everywhere. When they were finished, Brown pronounced each of them “junior deputy sheriffs” and gave them a gold badge. Shown above is Deputy Dwayne Brown with pre-K students.
