BAY SHORE, NY – It was a greeting fit for local heroes when the Suffolk County Police Department converged onto Hemlock Park Elementary School in Bay Shore. Officers were met with cheers from its students, especially when our police helicopter landed on their field.

The police department was in full force to give students a firsthand look at the operations and equipment used by police officers to fight crime.

“Members from the department’s Emergency Service, Canine and Aviation Sections along with Highway Patrol interacted with students in grades K through 5,” the department said today. “The students had the opportunity to learn about the different commands in the SCPD and what it takes to join the ranks of the department. The students had an opportunity to sit in police vehicles, hear the German commands our Canines receive and ask any question they had of the officers.”
