by David DeMullé Pinewood Elementary School and the LAPD Foothill Station held a joint “Walk With A Cop” event last week to familiarize the children with safe walking procedures while going to and from the Pinewood Elementary School. The LAPD were stationed at the Corner of Day St. & Silverton Ave., Pinewood Ave. and Apperson Ave., Silverton and Pinewood Ave., and the corner of Beckett Street and Silverton Ave.
More than 50 students met with the officers and received a badge sticker when they heard the safety instructions given by the officers. The concept was to promote safety while the children were being dropped off or walking to the Pinewood School. Everyone enjoyed the project.
