Clayton schools want to forge bond between elected leaders, police, parents and students

Clayton County police officers, mayors and city councilmembers are encouraged to stop by a local public school for a free breakfast or lunch this month. The “breakfast and lunch with a cop” program started Monday and runs through May 23, according to interim superintendent Luvenia Jackson. The program is designed to make students feel more comfortable and positive about their interactions with law enforcement and elected officials. Participants can receive one breakfast and lunch and are encouraged to walk the school halls and have other interaction with students.
