Students see government first hand

V.I.P. Treatment

Students from Sasha Woodard’s second-grade class at Roguewood Elementary School pose with officer Ian Graham at Rockford City Hall in the garage where police keep their vehicles. The kids were wrapping up a Thursday, May 13 tour of City Hall that included the City offices, fire department and police department. The students are part of the Spanish Immersion program at Roguewood and were soon to enjoy lunch at Cinco de Mayo before heading to the Rockford Historical Museum. Officer Graham showed the students where officers keep their street clothes while working, told them how dispatch works, and showed them the equipment that police use, even inviting them to climb right into his patrol car.
