VIDEO: Longview police officer gives kids ride as part of community outreach

LONGVIEW, TX (KLTV) - A Spring Hill Intermediate student and her friend got a ride to school today from Longview police officer Roger Askew.

The ride is part of the Longview Police Department’s community outreach and giving back to the community. The girls were ‘deputized’ before getting into the police vehicle, and they even got a chance to try out the sirens and lights, check out the vehicle and equipment, and learn more about what officers do on a daily basis.

The ride was a donated silent auction item from the Longview Police Department benefiting the World of Wonders Children’s Museum in Longview.
