Photo of the Week: Safety award
This week's photo comes from Officer David Leach of the Chatham Police Department in Illinois. Leach writes:
Last week, someone photographed one of our officers (Officer Travis Schaal) giving out a child safety award to one of the kids in our community. We have a summer program where we issue kids safety awards if we see them exercising any form of safety…be it wearing a bike helmet, looking both ways before they cross the street, etc. They can redeem the safety awards for a freebie of ice cream or another sweet treat at one of our local businesses. We felt this picture encapsulated the very essence of community policing.
