Cpl. Michael Kalinsky put a fairy tale spin on the role of the Cecil Sheriff's Deputies.
Kalinsky, while talking to the members of the Rising Sun Boys and Girls Club recently, after explaining the origins of the badge, likened it to a shield and said that deputies are "knights in shining armor".
And while this may be, it was Roscoe that got their attention.
Roscoe, the K-9 assigned to DFC Michael Thomas, did a mini-demonstration of the role of K-9s. The members of the club also got to tour two different sheriff's department vehicles. They received mini badges as gifts
Kalinsky said the visit to the club is part of the sheriff's department's Community Resources Outreach. Ceara Barker, who works at the Boys and Girls Club volunteered at the CCSO booth at the Cecil County Fair. In turn, the department came out to the club.
"This is one of the nicer things we get to do," said Cpl. Kalinsky.
The Community Resources Division is available to speak to groups or organizations. For more information contact Michael.Kalinsky@ccdps.org or call 443-309-0262.
