Students Get Look at Police Work, Meet K-9 Havoc


Some Burlington elementary students got a look into police work this week. 


Police Chief Michael said in a statement that Sgt. Kevin Cooney, K-9 Officer Joe Papsedero, and K-9 Havoc visited the Pine Glen Elementary School for Career Day on Tuesday.


During their visit, Officer Papsedero explained to students about the department's K-9 unit and his role as a Burlington Police Officer.


Students were then invited to tour the specially equipped K-9 vehicle and meet Havoc, a 7-year-old German Shepherd, the release states. Sgt. Cooney then gave students a tour of Burlington's new Mobile Command Center.


After the presentation and tour, students had many questions for the officers and were excited to meet and interact with Havoc.


"We are always happy to connect with the younger members of our community," Chief Kent said. "Our department enjoys bonding with students, and we are grateful to have been included in the Career Day activities."
