Penn College Police Officer Justin M. Hakes recently joined the Bears for “Bike Day” at the Dunham Children’s Learning Center, a vehicle for teaching the boys and girls the helpful mission of law enforcement. The officer, who often patrols campus on a bicycle, volunteered to visit after he saw a group of children riding earlier in the summer. “It was a great experience and I think we will have him back again to talk to us,” said Barbara J. Albert, center director. “The children enjoyed seeing all the tools on his bike. He talked to them about bike safety, as well as rode with them around the courtyard.”
