A program aimed at helping youngsters have a better understanding and respect for law enforcement happened today at the Presque Isle Regional Career and Technical Center. Presque Isle Police Chief Matt Irwin, Aroostook County Sherriff's Officer Shawn Gillen and State Representative Trey Stewart were all on hand reading to these youngsters who are in the ACAP Early Childhood Program through CTE. The center not only serves the needs of high-quality early learning for small children, but also serves as a learning laboratory for high school youth interested in pursuing early childhood as a career. But it was these law enforcement officers and Stewart who has been an advocate for law enforcement at the State House who were providing the important lessons about good citizenship and character by their interaction with these youngsters. And they're hoping these lessons last for lifetime.
