Fayetteville Police Department’s CARE Unit surprises students with gifts — 

Some outstanding Cleveland Elementary Crocodiles got a special visit from officers of the Fayetteville City Police Department during their second week of school.

The officers, representing the department’s CARE (Community Activity, Resources and Education) unit, were there to recognize a student from each grade level (prekindergarten through fifth), who had demonstrated exemplary behavior, and who are role models for other students at the school. The students were tapped for recognition because they have admirably demonstrated Cleveland’s expectations of being safe, respective and responsible.

Officers asked the school about the interests of each student and presented each one with a personalized gift.

Principal Jeannie Inagawa and school counselor Meshanna Marcus say they are grateful to the officers for taking time out of their day to recognize the students and present them with gifts. Branden Zuke, one of the CARE officers, stated that “The kids deserve it, and we really enjoyed it as well.”
