From the Eyes of an Officer

Ride-Along student Nick Levindoski faces a tough decision during a police stop

 

by John Vogt - May 19, 2014

Wellsboro High School students Nick Levindoski and Nick Marple learned a lot from the Wellsboro Police Department’s Ride-Along program. This program has been in existence for over 20 years and has been well received by educators, parents, law enforcement officials and students alike. Students ride along with the Wellsboro Police Department for approximately two hours of an officer’s shift. During those two hours anything can happen, setting up a perfect learning experience for the students. The program is not only informative and interesting, but has students on the edge of their seats as they watch our police officers in action.

On this particular Ride-Along, Officer Frank Levindoski not only shows us what a fine police officer he is, but we discover that he has outstanding teaching skills as well. The students experience a daily patrol which includes a local investigation of neighborhood crime, dangers to be alert for while on patrol, and a pull-over of an out-of-town speeder. During each incident, Officer Levindoski took the students through every step of the process.

Nick Levindoski is taking Justice Education at Wellsboro High School and is interested in Criminal Justice. Nick Marple is also enrolled in Justice Education classes and is considering a career in Criminal Justice.

Wellsboro Home Page was impressed with both of these young men and believe that they would be an asset to any law enforcement organization in the future.

For more information on the Student Ride-Along program, students and parents can contact Sherry Mohr – (the teacher in charge of the Justice Education program at Wellsboro High School.) You can also review our feature story with Chief Jim Bodine and Ms. Sherry Mohr titled The Weekly Briefing – A Life Changing Ride.

This feature should not only inform you, but deepen your respect for our local police force as well.
