Methuen Police K-9 Officer Attends Touch a Truck Event at Professional Center for Child Development
METHUEN – Mayor James P. Jajuga and Chief Joseph Solomon are pleased to share that Methuen K-9 Officer Michael Havey Jr. attended a recent community Touch a Truck event in Andover.
For the second year in a row, the Methuen Police Department participated in the annual Touch a Truck event on Sunday, June 9, at the Professional Center for Child Development, a school that provides educational and therapeutic services for children with physical and mental disabilities. Each year, police cars, fire engines, construction vehicles, box trucks and other motor vehicles come together to be put on display for the Touch a Truck event.
Officer Havey Jr. brought “Hope,” the Methuen Police Department’s pink Breast Cancer Awareness Dodge Charger to the event, and showed children the inside and outside of the vehicle as well as all of its special policing features.
“This event is such a great opportunity for law enforcement to meet these children and their families, and have a fun day showing them these vehicles,” Officer Havey said. “It’s a special day, and it’s great that the Professional Center for Child Development hosts this Touch a Truck event each year.”
