Students learn about careers in law enforcement

RPD celebrates black heritage month

ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WROC-TV) - The Rochester police department is continuing to celebrate black heritage month.

Sixth grade students from Frank Fowler Dow School 52 got the chance to learn about careers in law enforcement Friday.

Specialized units such as K9, swat, bomb squad, and traffic unit were also in attendance to get students more familiar with different jobs available after high school.

"The chief will be here along with the sergeants and lieutenants just because we want the kids to understand what police officers do. I don't want them to see us in a negative aspect. And maybe one of these kids here today will want to be police officers." said Investigator Jacqueline Shuman.

After the event, kids were able to have lunch with officers. This was one of two events held this month by the Rochester police department.
