Sheriff Milo Cardenas and Deputy Ricky Trevino were up against a tough crowd on Thursday of last week when they attended story hour with the preschoolers at the Bridgeport Public Library. Sheriff Cardenas spent time talking to the little ones about the importance of being safely buckled in their car seats and reminding their parents to buckle up while driving. He reminded them that police officers are friends who can help when they’re not sure what to do. The children learned how to look both ways before crossing the street and then took to the outdoors to practice what they learned before Trevino drove up in a shiny white police car. He hit the sirens and flashed the lights for full effect and the kids were able to peer inside at all the gadgets in the vehicle for a full-on education session.
