Please help me celebrate another graduating class of G.R.E.A.T.!

On January 29, 2015, SRO Deputy Adam Kindle graduated 110 students at Broadway Elem. This was Deputy Kindles first graduation class, which consisted of a 6 week program;
G.R.E.A.T.  (Gang Resistance Education And Training) is an evidence-based and effective gang and violence prevention program built around school-based, law enforcement officer-instructed classroom curriculum.
The program is intended as an immunization against delinquency, youth violence, and gang membership for children in the years immediately before the prime ages for introduction into gangs and delinquent behavior. It also walks the students through processes like decision making, conflict resolution, anger management, and the consequences of gangs and violence. It also builds their relationship and trust with law enforcement personnel.

Sheriff Carter was the guest speaker as Principal George Raley recognized all graduates.
