PHOTOS: School Children ‘Shine’ Police Cars in Honor of National Police Week

P1010919PHOTOS: School students from the Calvary Academy this morning took part in the National Police Week in their own way.

The young students of project SHINE used sponges and shampoo to clean the Lakewood Police Department’s patrol and armored vehicles.

Tens of thousands of law enforcement officers from around the world converge on Washington, DC during this Police Week to participate in a number of planned events which honor those that have paid the ultimate sacrifice.

As the officers had their cars washed for free, they enjoyed donuts and coffee served by the children.

  1. How about bringing the remainder of the cars to some Jewish schools in town. It would be nice for our kids to give back. Additionally many of the young kids in our community have a fear of the police officers in town, this might help them overcome it.

  2. Thank you Lakewood Scoop for covering this wonderful event today at the Calvary Lighthouse School, and a special thanks to the staff, teachers and students who made this all possible. Sorry I missed it this year but the department was well represented by some of our great officers.
    Abe – I think thats a great idea and please reach out to me anytime and we can make it happen and foster a better relationship between our officers and all of Lakewoods students. We want the children of Lakewood to know that the police are their friends and that they can always turn to an officer anytime they need help. Gone are the days of parents scaring their children to listen or the police will take them away. I look forward to your call.

  3. Abe, where do the kids get that fear from???…most likely from the parents who are bitter at the police because they got caught doing something wrong. You write it as if the police are to blame. Get a clue.
