Law enforcement personnel visit elementary school

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - Students at Hearst Elementary School in Del Cerro got an up close look at some of the tools used by local law enforcement.

Members of the San Diego Police Department, Sheriff's Department, Border Patrol and animal control units were on hand to show off some of their vehicles and equipment.

For the officers, days like this are about building relationships with students.

"This is a great opportunity for kids to interact with law enforcement in a positive way to see the resources that we have to be able to get in and touch and really get down and see this stuff," said Lt. Kevin Mayer with the San Diego Police Department.

The event is part of Red Ribbon Week, which is an annual campaign aimed at teaching kids to stay away from drugs and make good decisions in their lives moving forward.
