On Friday, March 24, 2017, starting at 6:45AM—over 50 Police Departments from Provincetown to Pittsfield—visited hundreds of schools as part of a statewide 'High Five Friday' program initiated by the Yarmouth Police Department. 'HIgh Five Friday' involved uniformed Police Officers greeting school children as they arrived for school in the morning and exchanging High Fives.

'High Five Friday' is an outstanding opportunity to have positive engagement with the youth in our community and fits perfectly with recommendations of the President Obama’s Task Force on 21st Century Policing. Specifically, it is in line with the following two pillars of 21st Century Policing which are Building Trust and Legitimacy, and Community Policing and Crime Reduction.

The goals of 'High Five Friday' are:

• Positive interaction with school children and Police Officers
• Added to the sense of security for faculty, students, and parents
• Build trust
• Reduce fear
• Foster positive relationships
• Police Officers are viewed as guardians and part of the community
• Police Officers gain a greater sense of friendship with faculty, students, and parents

Yarmouth Police Department Patrol Officer Richard Fichter, Jr.—a graduate of Dennis-Yarmouth Regional High School and United States Army veteran—was our Police Officer-in-Charge of this program and the YPD visited every school in Yarmouth and everyone involved loved it! We thank the Dennis-Yarmouth Regional School District for their support and we look forward to many more 'High Five Fridays' in the future! 👮🏻‍♀️🖐🏻😄
