It’s a wonderful day in the Brightwood neighborhood! Commander Griffin of the 4th District Metropolitan Police kicked off the MPD Community Relations effort with Community Outreach Specialist, Derek Staten. Our male students, Herson and Ade, attended a fishing trip with the Commander. Our scholars had an awesome time, and Ade was able to catch a fish! Check out our pictures on Facebook.

The 4th District Metropolitan Police Station sits adjacent to the Paul football field. Stop by the Station after school to learn more about a career in criminal justice, the role of the law enforcement, or to seek assistance or a safe place with a problem you may be having at home or in the street.
