5-year old Writes Letter to Kingston Police

Kingston Police recently received a letter from local 5-year-old Carter. In his letter Carter said “If there’s any bad guys, please save us” and then he talked about learning to call 911 when there’s an emergency.

Turns out, Carter’s kindergarten class was given an assignment to learn how to write and mail a traditional letter. Students were given a choice of who they wished to write to and Carter chose to write the Kingston Police.

School Resource Officer Constable Hurding attended his school to meet Carter and thank him for the letter.
