64th-roc-pcis-camp

The 64th R.O.C. Plymouth Police Academy PT session took place at the Plymouth Community Intermediate School. However it wasn’t a typical PT session for us. Director Goodick informed us that we were going to participate in a unique PT session on this day. She informed us that we would be helping out at a summer camp doing an obstacle course where we would each be matched up with a couple of kids and then doing a few other activities with them. Throughout this experience all of us had positive personal interactions with a number of students; truly showing them that police officers are just like every other person. That they too can eventually become police officers if they truly want, exactly like how we are all trying to become one.

It was truly a pleasure to spend just a small amount of time with these kids. There is no doubt that they took away a lot from this experience, but so did we. Knowing we just made a great experience and memory for the kids was great; showing them that police officers are their friends, and truly just want to help. The Plymouth Police Academy staff having the 64th R.O.C. do this really opened a lot of our eyes that getting out there and interacting with our communities, especially the youth, is extremely vital and helpful to building that ever important relationship between the community and police. That community policing is truly a vital foundation of policing.
