Police Visit Grades 7-9

Hello Grade 7-9 Students,

Our friends from the Nanjing Police Bureau will visit with you in the PAC on Thursday during Life 101 to discuss personal safety, rules and regulations in Xianlin, and how to avoid possible issues with law enforcement.

The style of presentation will be a Q&A and for this we need your questions! Could you please make a list of 10-12 questions as an Advisory today and/or tomorrow and ask you Advisor to send this list to Mr. Bratton by 8:30am on Wednesday? We’ll use some of these questions to guide our discussion with the police officers that are coming to visit.

Thanks!
