It's National Police Week

In 1962, President John F. Kennedy signed a proclamation which designated May 15 Peace Officers Memeorial Day and the week in which that date falls as Police Week.

Part of the Amazing Working Dogs with American Humane, Enslow's Police Dog Heroes explains what types of jobs these dogs do, their training, and what happens when the dog retires. Written for the elementary reader, author Linda Bozzo has also written five other titles (fire dog, guide dog, search and rescue dog, service dog, and therapy dog) in this series.

Police Officer and K-9 Presented Book by Author

Enslow author, Linda Bozzo, visited James Monroe Elementary School in Edison, New Jersey yesterday to present Officer Shawn Meade and his K-9 partner, Lucky, a copy of her new book Police Dog Heroes in which the officer and his dog are featured.

After presenting the newly published book to Officer Meade, Linda read from the book. She also talked about how she came in contact with the officer and told the group of children how he helped her with the research for the book.

Police Dog Heroes is one of six books in Enslow's new series, "Amazing Working Dogs with American Humane" for grades 3–4.  Each book in the series features a true story of a real dog and his handler as well as includes the history, breeds used, training, the work they do, and what happens when these dog heroes retire.
