My favorite part was all of it! I really had fun spending time with police officers. The time when we played soccer was the longest time we ever played soccer. Crime day and the crime in the basement was amazing, it was so thrilling. Being able to meet and see the dogs were so fun. Plus I loved all the activities!
The drug session was a great introduction to risks involved with taking drugs, how people may begin on such a path, as well as chat about how to make healthier choices and avoid such situations. This program was very engaging and informative.
