Photos of the Week: National Read Across America Day

This week’s Photos of the Week come from National Read Across America Day in Lawton, Oklahoma! Lawton Police Department LEOs and I.U.P.A. Local Lawton Police Officers Assn., #24 members, Detective Houseman and Detective Rucker read to first graders to celebrate the occasion and to spend some time with local kids.

Lawton Police Department shared the below photos on social media along with the message, “The Lawton Police Department would like to thank Lawton Public Schools, Mrs. Shotts, and Ms. Mckelvey for allowing Det. Houseman and Det. Rucker to come out and read to your first graders in National Read Across America Day! We make a living by what we get, but we make a great life by what we give.”

Each week, the I.U.P.A. Briefing Room features a photo that exemplifies the valuable part of the community that our Law Enforcement Officers all across the U.S. are and their positive impact as well as their dedication, service, and sacrifice.
