A few days after a presentation at Goodyear Elementary School, Sgt. Babbin was at the police station when a little girl came through the lobby. When she saw him, she exclaimed, "I know him, he was at my school!” It’s clear that Eddie Eagle made quite the impression during the visit.
Currently, the program is taught by the community outreach officer but moving forward, Sgt. Babbin wants to have patrol officers assist with the program. He explains that patrol officers are the ones around the kids the rest of the time when they are not at school. This will help foster an even stronger relationship between local law enforcement and the community.
With several more classes planned for the rest of the year, the Eddie Eagle Program knows Glynn County schools are in good hands with the Brunswick Police Department and Sgt. Babbin.
