COMMUNITY HELPERS — Emmetsburg Police Officer Darren Adams is pictured speaking to Kindergarten students at Emmetsburg West Elementary School on Tuesday morning. The students are learning about Police Officers as Community Helpers. Officer Adams and Police Chief Ryan Veldboom told the students that Police Officers are their friends and they can always go to a Police Officer for help. The group talked about safety, always wearing a seat belt, and never talking to strangers. With Trick or Treat night coming up, they advised the students to only go to houses that they know, only go to houses that have lights on, and stay in group when out and about.
