Thank you for visiting our website. From this book, your children will learn more than the fact that police officers are their friends. They will learn to view local law enforcement as an essential component of their community and to feel secure when seeing them, understanding they are there to help and serve. They will also learn that respect and kindness are keys to developing lasting friendships with their peers.
Love of family and country, respect for authority and civic responsibility are essential components which help make up a successful society. So, teach your child that police officers are their friends. For the very simple reason…they are!
We want law enforcement to feel a sense of ownership of this mission to America.

When I see police officers in the community, I get a secure feeling because I know they are there to help and protect us. They keep our family safe while performing one of the toughest jobs in the world.
This is why we are proponents of introducing younger children to police officers. When we see them out in public, we should tell our children that these people are police officers and they are our friends and if you ever need help, go to them and they will help you. Doing such will not only give parents security when we are not there to protect them, but also teaches our children a love of family and country, respect for authority and civic responsibility. These are essential components which help make up a successful society.
Just like songs, books that rhyme can help a message stick to the mind. Along with our illustrations, we hope this message also finds a home in the heart of your child.
We have a vision for America and its children. That vision is for children to know they are loved and matter in life and for them to grow up to be positive and happy adults. Such attributes help give the fabric of society its strength. Together, we can all help develop a positive and winning attitude that will serve as a foundation for a successful and productive life.
So, teach your children that police officers are our friends. For a very simple reason, they are!
