UPDATE (November 18, 2016  7:07 p.m.):

In October, officers at the Woodlawn Precinct began an outreach effort to get police officers and elementary school children together at lunch time for some positive interaction. It started at Church Lane Elementary School in Randallstown with officers who came on Fridays to ride bikes with some students.

The officers noticed that some of the kids had bikes that were not the right size for them and some kids had no bikes. They got some money from the precinct’s Bruce Prothero soda fund, went to a local Walmart, and bought some bikes for the kids. The bikes will be kept at the school and used when there is a student who needs a bike to ride on Fridays.

Officers hope to continue Friday visits at Church Lane Elementary and other schools in the future.

Original release (October 7, 2016  2:22 p.m.):

Officers from the Woodlawn Precinct recently rode bikes with some students from Church Lane Elementary School in Randallstown.

It is a part of a new outreach effort at the Woodlawn Precinct that seeks to get police officers and elementary school children together at lunch time for some positive interaction. “Many people only interact with police when something bad has happened and we want to change that. By reaching out to the youth in the community we hope to build positive lasting relationships” said Captain Matt Gorman, the Commanding Officer of the Woodlawn Precinct.

Last Friday students in the Church Lane Elementary School Bike Club got a surprise. Some police officers brought their bikes in and rode with the students. Everyone had a great time. Officers hope to continue visits like this at Church Lane Elementary and other schools in the future.
