Riverton Police Chief Eric Murphy and members of the RPD had lunch with elementary school students from Jackson Elementary on Friday enjoying a sandwich, some fries, a banana and milk. The officers also had a chance to go to recess with the kids for some outdoor fun.
Each of the officers also received a hand written letter from the students. One of the letters was featured on the RPD FaceBook Page along with the following comment:
“Today a young man in the second grade discussed with me how he wanted to grow up to be a police officer. How he thought that when the planes hit the buildings, the police went running toward it to help, and that made them hero’s. I couldn’t agree more.
“Thank you and your class for thanking us today, through letters like the one below, through talking with us and even playing at recess; but more importantly thank you for learning about and honoring the New York fallen as hero’s because they truly are.”
