Our officers are always on the lookout for the bad guys, but it is much more satisfying to catch the good guys. School Recourse Officer Brian Evatt has been noticing these two guys slipping away at lunch time.

Where did he find them? They have made it a habit to spend a few days each week during their lunch hour talking to, hanging out with, and encouraging the ESE students. That shows true character – glad these young men are part of our wonderful community!
