The Mount Pleasant Police Department will be conducting their Reading Patrol program May 17, from 11 a.m. to noon at Barnes and Noble within the Mount Pleasant Towne Centre. This Reading Patrol day will be geared towards honoring our military men and women.
“The Reading Patrol is a new program that builds a foundation of knowledge and trust for our youth and strengthens their relationship with the police department,” said Police Chief Carl Ritchie. “Reading and literacy are key factors in school retention and graduation rates and the department believes that it is never too early to develop a lifelong love of reading. Our talented officers are building bonds with the youth of our community one book at a time. We want to preserve and build on that positive sentiment.”
