Winthrop Police Chief Terence Delehanty and three of his officers visited the Pre-Kindergarten morning and afternoon classes of Miss Corinne and Miss Andrea at Fort Banks -William Gorman Elementary School on Tuesday.Â The purpose of the visit was to give the pre-schoolers a chance to meet the police officers and hear what they do.
They also got a visit from Silly Willy the Clown, who partnered up with the Winthrop Police for the day and got the chance to climb inside of a real police cruiser and activate the sirens.
â€œWe were invited to the school by the two teachers and we thought it would be a great way to meet with the little ones and kind of let them find out what we do,â€ explained Chief Delehanty, who brought officers Dawne Armitstead, Sean Perrin and James Freeman with him, as well as Silly Willy.
