As part of an effort to keep up a relationship between law enforcement and Douglas County children, Douglas County Sheriff Tony Spurlock, in partnership with Council for a Strong America, participated in a virtual book reading April 14 and 15.

By remotye video conference, Spurlock read the children's book “Officer Buckle and Gloria” to two groups of preschoolers at Coyote Creek Elementary School in Highlands Ranch. He also introduced one of the sheriff's office K-9's to the children and answered their questions in sessions lasting about 40 minutes, according to a release from Council For a Strong America, or CSA.
