heard the importance of physical fitness to the police profession and to one’s own personal health. The boys were directed to glance up to a picture of a giant size check Pelham had received from the DEA several years ago. This check, given for Pelham’s assistance in cracking a major drug case, paid for the gym equipment. Officer DeRoche went on to tell the boys, “Good things come from catching the bad guys!” A small sea of nodding heads concurred.

Next the jail cells, the padded cells, evidence lockers, finger printing, the holding area, and what the cubs will tell you was the highlight of the trip, getting to sit inside a police car! The officers demonstrated how cruiser light sequence and sirens mean they are responding to certain calls. Each cruiser is equipped with state of the art laptop with GPS system that allow all on duty officers keep in touch with dispatch and each other at all times. Once the final siren sounded and the cruiser parked, it was on to the community room for the boys and officers. This was the final opportunity for our cubs to ask their lingering questions and have a photo opportunity with our guides.

for the tour. As the boys departed the station they were given a “Just Say no to Drugs” backpack containing a Frisbee and water bottle. One of our cubs summed up their visit rather well … ”Wow, we got to see the cool station and we get a present, too.” Next month the Tigers and Wolves will be visiting the Pelham Fire Department and PERC. Ron Hannon, PERC’s Manager, in response to an inquiry by Pack 610, has developed a video program and is coordinating a visit to the recycling center. Set for November 5 after PERC is closed, Ron is highlighting how the recycling
