The Delaware State Police Community Outreach Unit, Mounted Patrol Unit, Troop 3 and Honorary Commanders joined together Aug. 23 in the back-to-school initiative, “It’s ‘cool’ to go back to school.”

The Delaware State Police, with the help of community and clergy members, visited Meadowbrook Acre Community, Dover Air Park, Rodney Village, Alder Park and Capitol Park.

In addition, visits were made to Brecknock Park and the Boys & Girls Club of Delaware. Children were contacted, and they had an opportunity to interact and socialize with the troopers. Freeze pops, coloring books, miniature footballs and basketballs were handed out.
