APACHE JUNCTION, Ariz. - Aug. 6, 2018 - PRLog -- Officer Carl Halperin, has been named the liaison between Apache Junction Unified School District and the Apache Junction Police Department.

Officer Halperin has an office in the 11/12 building at Apache Junction High School, 2525 Ironwood Drive in AJ and he will teach lessons to high school kids about alcohol and related risks, teach the DARE curriculum to all the fifth and eighth grade students in the District, as well as take the majority of district's criminal or "duty to report" calls for the police department.

Part of his role is to be "Officer Friendly," demonstrating to students that the police are trusted adults they can go to for support.

"In this climate, the police are painted in a negative light, which hinders their ability to effectively build alliances with our community," said Officer Halperin. "I may be the only positive interaction a student has with law enforcement and I pride myself on making that interaction fun and memorable."

The father of three enjoys science and nature outings with his family and added that he feels honored to work with teachers and administrators who understand the importance of educating our youth.
