Howell Scouts Get Firsthand Look at Local Police Department
Officers took local girls on a tour of headquarters
Girl Scout Troop 1978 recently got the chance to see the inner workings of the Howell Police Department and according to Buffy DiGioia had a great time learning more about the people who protect them on a daily basis.
DiGioia said with the help of Cpls. Fred Bauer and Kevin Steinard as well as Ptl. Maureen McBride the girls saw everything from the dispatch area to the municpal court and other key parts of the building. She said the girls got the chance to ask the officers questions about their jobs to learn more about what it takes to do their job.
She said the answers they got, "not only delighted them, but encouraged to pursue their curiosities." Taking the tour with their parents and siblings DiGioia said it was a memorable experience for everyone. "As parents of Troop 1978 we are truly appreciative of the wonderful effort these men and women exert everyday but to get the chance to be up close and witness their duties and interactions with the troop was extremely gratifying and eyeopening."
