Friday was the monthly "Club Day" at City Park Elementary in Dalton, and the Community Club got a visit Friday afternoon from the Dalton Police Department. Officer Chad Owen took time out of his patrol duties to visit the club to answer their questions about police work.
The City Park Community Club is made up of interested students from the 3rd, 4th, and 5th grades. They listened while Officer Owen answered questions about the equipment officers carry on their duty belts, different jobs police officers have to carry out, and even how fast a bullet flies (answer: pretty fast).
The kids also got an up-close look at Officer Owen's patrol car, getting a chance to see the emergency lights switched on and hear the siren.
