Police Gifts Books to Kindergarteners

Police Gifts Books to Kindergarteners
Cpl. Brianne Williamson of the Youth Service team spent some time in September purchasing enough “gently used” books to gift one to each of the kindergarten students entering school.  Cpl. Williamson wanted to offer the soon to be kindergarteners a welcome gift that both humanized the police and encouraged these young learners to read. Cpl. Williamson had accumulated over 200 books for the students to choose from.  On December 15th Cpl. Williamson received some very thoughtful thank you notes from the students. 
Policing is in a vulnerable place in many communities, our officers in South Burlington work tremendously hard providing the police services the community expects.  Cpl. Williamson's efforts here really form the bedrock of trust which is critical to police-community relations. 
Thank you Corporal Brianne Williamson for your hard work, dedication and leadership!
