“Hi Kids My Name is Officer Rico”  
Look for me at the Park

Yes, dogs can be police officers too!  I carry a
police badge and my job is to keep the park safe.

I am still a young pup and I love school!  School is
very important.  I study many subjects and take
many classes.  My job is to patrol the park and
make sure everyone is safe.  I have learned to use
my nose to smell things and my eyes to find things
when they are lost.  I am also very good at patrolling
and sniffing out bad things that we don’t allow at the
park.  Along with my fellow officers, your safety is
our top job
My name is Officer Rico
