CAROLINA BEACH - During the month of February, the Carolina Beach Police Department and its Police Advisory Committee (PAC) sponsored a composition and art competition at the Carolina Beach Elementary School (CBES). 3rd, 4th and 5th grade students were requested to write a theme on the topic, “If I were the Carolina Beach Police Chief”. Kindergarten, 1st and 2nd grade students were requested to draw a picture of a police officer. A winning entry from each of the categories was selected by members of the PAC. The winning entry for the younger classes was submitted by Miss Olivia Grace Skinner of Mrs Baltizore’s 1st grade class. The winning essay was submitted by Miss Kloie Duggan of Mrs Wilkinson’s 4th grade class. Ms Erica Rodgers, representing Target Department Stores, presented $25 gift cards to each of the winners. Over 100 entries were submitted by students and the quality of the submissions was impressive. Both the students and staff at CBES are to be congratulated for their effort. The following is the composition written by Kloie Duggan, 4th grader.
“If I were the Carolina Beach Police Chief” by Kloie Duggan
“If I were the Carolina Beach Police Chief I would make sure that everybody was treated fairly. I would make sure that no one did drugs, drinking and driving or kill somebody. I want to be the Carolina Beach Police Chief because it will help me get into courage and help me in the air force. I wish I was already the Carolina Beach Police Chief. I know I am only 9 years old but I still have dreams. When I grow up I will become the Carolina Beach Police Chief.
I will not let my friends and family get robbed or anyone. I will always be by your side. I will not let anyone get hurt no matter what. I will give my life up for people to live and not get robbed. My world matters to me and I will not let it down. I also won’t let littering happen. I want to be the Carolina Beach Police Chief really bad.
My family and friends won’t die with me being the Carolina Beach Police Chief. My life would be more fun and important to me if I was the Carolina Beach Police Chief. If there was a really bad emergency I would call all the other cops, firemen and ambulance and help with the emergency. The way I would train my cops I would put them in cop boot camp. The way I would get everybody I would call 911, 411 and let them know to come. What I would wear for the emergency I would wear metal.” The next meeting of the Carolina Beach Police Advisory Committee is Monday, May 6 at 7PM in the conference room at the rear of Town Hall. Residents are invited to bring their concerns to the meeting.
