OPD visits Head Start


 OKEECHOBEE --  K-9 Officer Jessica Francis with partner K-9 Luna, Officer Trenton Moutschka and Sergeant Cesar Romero visited Head Start and read books, let the kids explore the inside of a patrol vehicle, play with the sirens and lights, get a lesson on patrol gear and play and observe K9 Luna in action. Ages range from 3-4 year olds and this took place at the Okeechobee Headstart Child Care located at 1798 NW 9th Ave.

Officer T. Moutschka orchestrated the gathering with Okeechobee County Fire Rescue and was quoted as saying “In doing something like this, it is teaching children to not be afraid to come us, helping them to understand we are there to protect them and the community that they live in. Involving ourselves in the community even on our off days, shows our dedication and commitment to not only our career but to the people we took the oath to protect and serve.”
