Emma's dad, Anthony Brownell, visited our classroom on Monday and taught us about his job as a member of the Burlington Police Department. He explained the equipment that he carries on his vest including a baton, taser, camera, hot pepper spray, walkie-talkie and gun.
He also brought his police cruiser. We went outside where the students took turns climbing in the back seat and sitting in the drivers seat. They really enjoyed turning on the lights. It was a surprise when one of the students learned how the microphone worked. It was loud!
