You Can Too

A new program has been started in the Yankton School District to help young people understand the role that police officers play in the local community.

The program You Can Too was piloted in Tucson Arizona and Yankton Police Chief John Harris says it works to build self-respect for the students while helping them to overcome any fear of police officers they may have.

Harris says the expansion of Yankton School District’s School Resource Officer program to a full time basis this year has been a success.

Harris says the You Can Too program for second and fourth grade students works to compliment the DARE program for older elementary school students.
