BRANCHBURG, NJ - Thanks to the Bound Brook Police station and Officer Waller and Officer Jay, Kangaroo Kids summer campers had an opportunity to vist the Bound Brook Police Station. 

Officer Frank Waller taught the students about a career in the police department and showed them all the many things a police officer has to carry in his car and on his belt.

Kangaroo Kids Child Care and Learning Center Summer Campers also had an opportunity to see what it is like to be in a prison cell, an experience they aren’t anxious to repeat. Waller also showed them what it felt like to sit in a court room and Jay introduced them to his police dog.
