Reno Police Officer Recognized for Working with Students

By  | 

Some local students have found a special friend in one Reno Police officer. On Friday afternoon, the kids at Echo Loder Elementary took time to thank Officer Tim Naughton for all he does for the school.

“Officer Tim” has been visiting the students at the school every Friday, as part of the police “Weed and Seed” program, which promotes a positive relationship with law enforcement.

Officer Naughton says when he first started talking to the kids, they didn't know what to think of him. And now, the students are very friendly and say “Hi” to him all the time. He says he’s grateful that they've accepted him at the school.
