Police in our school

2016

by Becky Coyle and Juan Bautista Juan Oliver

"When Ben and his friends see a new face at school, they aren't quite sure how to react. Ben thinks it means big trouble, but he quickly learns that sometimes things aren't always what the seem. Follow along as three friends learn about their new School Resource Officer and the role she plays in keeping students safe while they learn and play."--Back cover "A School Resource Officer has a diverse role in the school community and has many duties and responsibilities. This book teaches kids about the important role their school resource officers play to protect them and their school. Becky Coyle learned firsthand how children can misunderstand officer's roles in schools through her work as an elementary school resource officer. It inspired her to create this School Safety series to explain school safety concepts to young children in a fun and engaging way."--Amazon
