Students beat the over 90-degree heat on Wednesday by enjoying Manning’s ice cream provided by the University of Scranton Police Department.
“You can never go wrong with free ice cream, but this event is also a good opportunity to get to know police officers on campus,” student officer lieutenant Kyle Kolcharno, ’20, said.
Officers, along with giving out ice cream, also gave helpful advice and information about personal safety, theft prevention, risk reduction and UPD programming.
“We want the community to interact with police officers and to participate in the programs,” Erica Armstrong, Operations Coordinator of the University Police, said.
Gaining familiarity with the police department is an essential way to guarantee a not only fun but safe school year ahead.
