The North Bergen Police Department’s Ice Cream Tour continues to make its way from school to school throughout the township. Thursday afternoon’s stop was at Franklin School, where more than 300 kids were treated to their choice of chocolate or vanilla soft ice cream cones on June 14, 2018.
Police Officers Nader Adawallah, Billy Brown, and Roberto Ruiz were on hand to greet the kids and distribute the cones, and to answer questions about their jobs. Joining them were Captain David Corbisiero, Lt. Thomas Ferrari, School Principal Janet Sandstrom, Vice Principal Ed Narucki, and the Franklin School teachers and school officers.
The Ice Cream with a Cop initiative is making its way to all the elementary schools in North Bergen and bringing free cones to students in grades 1 through 5 in an effort to break the ice (cream) and build positive relationships with kids at an early age.
The tour continues through Tuesday, June 19 with the officers bringing three trucks to each school after lunch.
