It great to see more and more examples of Maine Police officers reaching in our communities to strengthen trust. It's especially cool when they connect with kids and have some fun.

Officer Chase of the Augusta Police Department did just that this week at Gilbert School in Augusta. His visit included a classroom dance party! Watch this adorable video of the officer moving and shaking with students to the Village People's YMCA. And check out the kid rippin' it up in the background...feel it little brutha!

Way to go Officer Chase! This is a wicked great example of creating goodwill between the police and the public. These kids at Gilbert School in Augusta will never forget this.
