WMW host David Rose, DEA visit Burien students for ‘National Community Policing Week’

BURIEN -- It's National Community Policing Week as designated by President Obama to help build strong relationships between law enforcement and the neighborhoods they serve.

What better way than to start with the kids! So, I joined the DEA and Burien Police at Seahurst Elementary on Tuesday to meet the students.

All the kids got a chance to try out some of the DEA's gear including a Ghillie suit used when agents need to hide in the bushes during undercover work.

The idea is to talk with the students and relate to them and let them have some fun.

"It's important to reach out at an early age, get them on the right track, give them the drug free message and hopefully they can aspire and be what they want to be when they grow up,” said DEA Special Agent Keith Wise.

This is the first of several visits the DEA is making to local schools, in fact on Tuesday, I'll be joining them in Tacoma along with Blitz from the Seahawks to surprise another school.
