LMPD recruits spend day helping seniors, children

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, KY. (WDRB) -- Some future Louisville Metro police officers are getting a lesson in serving the community.  LMPD recruits were at the Westport Place Senior Home Friday as part of one community service project going on in the city.

The 20 recruits also split their time at Kosair Children's Hospital, spending time talking with the children and seniors, playing games, and presenting them with gifts.  It's part of the LMPD curriculum.

Daniel Weedman of the LMPD recruiting class explained, "Just the service, you know, it's what we signed up for, it's what we want to do with our jobs.  We want to service our community as well as protect them, so it's great to get out and see who the community is comprised of and get to meet new members of our community.

This recruiting class will graduate in August.
