When I was in elementary school I recall having in-class presentations and field trips out to the school parking lot for demonstrations. One of the standout presentations I remember, second only to getting to watch Bill Nye the Science Guy for an entire afternoon, was when “Officer Friendly” would pay a visit to our classrooms each year.

A local police officer would visit each grade to talk to students about safety, the ways they can keep themselves and their fellow classmates safe and what to do in an emergency.
