This post is part of the Community Helpers Series
Are police officers community helpers?
It is so much fun to teach our little ones about the people around us that have interesting and important jobs to do in our community. Police officers are certainly community helpers. In fact, they are some of the most important ones around.
Police officers protect and serve the community by assuring citizens abide by the laws, keep order, arrest criminals, and help us feel safe.
What can we teach our kids about police officers?
In our community helpers unit, we can teach much about those who help our community function well. Specifically for policemen, we can teach our kids the following:
- Basic responsibilities of the police officers.
- How to identify a police officer uniform.
- Why they are important to our community.
- Things we can do to show police officers our appreciation.
