The party kicked off with Santa arriving at school in a police car. The students ate a pizza lunch. Policemen and women played games with the students at recess, and served them cookies and milk while they watched “The Polar Express.”“Our students (left) the day with memories they will never forget… They see our police as friends, heroes and, most important, partners. The OCPD helps us throughout the year on a daily basis to keep us safe, assist us, and educate our students on being safe. They are second to none,” Ocean City Primary School principal Cathy Smith said.This is the second consecutive year OCPBA has organized this event. Detective Bob Koob and Sergeant Steve Sullivan spearheaded the holiday party’s organization.“It’s a priority of ours to be in the schools throughout the year, and this is one of my unit’s favorite days of the year,” Sullivan said. The OCPBA gave each of the students and staff members of the school red tee shirts that show off the school’s mascot on the front and the OCPD police badge on the back. The shirts read “Partners in Safety.” They will be worn on Fridays to promote school unity and on field trips to help teachers keep track of students.last_img read more
