Primary School students received a week-long introduction to the tools of the law enforcement trade. PS SRO Franz Zygmuntowicz, more commonly know to students as Officer Z, organized visits from colleagues throughout the week of May 15-18 to show the students the types of resources used by police officers in the course of their duties. Law enforcement officers from Allegheny County, the City of Pittsburgh, Bridgeville Borough, the Port Authority and Collier Township came to discuss their bicycles, motorcycles, 4x4s, sedans, SUVs, bomb squads, and K-9 units and how they all factor into daily police work. Students were able to get a close up look at and even got to touch or wear some of the protective equipment.
