GALVESTON, TX - Cops may have a bad rap around some parts of the country, but in Galveston County, Constable Clint Wayne Brown, is bringing the community and law enforcement closer together. Twenty different agencies greet local students to show them what they do, all part of Law Enforcement Day.

Constable Clint Wayne Brown of Galveston County Precinct 2 explained, "We see them on the streets all the time and we want them to always be friendly to us and we want to be friendly to them. We want to give them a chance to come out and see the officers in their vehicles and the helicopters as you see, and give the kids a chance to meet them one on one and have a nice interaction with the officers."

Kids got to talk with officers, look at a variety of vehicles, including helicopters and boats and even test some of the gear out.

Trooper Colin Kolupski with DPS said, "Gives them a little bit of confidence that we're not all out there, we're not evil people. They have nothing to fear from us."

A fun day for kids and officers alike.
