UNION COUNTY, NJ -- Union County Sheriff’s Officers took part in the Read Across America on March 2 throughout Union County in honor of the birthday of children’s author Dr. Seuss.

“We send some of our officers out to schools across Union County to read a Dr. Seuss book to the kids,” Union County Sheriff Joe Cryan said. “It is a great program.”

Officers from the Union County Sheriff’s Office read to students in School #9 in Elizabeth, Brunner Elementary School in Scotch Plains, the Hannah Caldwell Elementary School in Union and the Cedarbrook K-8 School in Plainfield.

“This is the second consecutive year our officers have participated in this program. It’s a win/win for our officers and the kids involved,” Sheriff Cryan said. “Anytime we can get out in the community and interact with the kids in a positive way it’s a good thing, and it provides us an opportunity to promote reading to the kids in a fun way.”
