Three officers will spend 30-40 minutes helping students with their homework during the one-hour sessions, with 20 minutes set aside to play games with those attending.

“We are excited to restart this program and begin working and having fun with the students once again,” said Columbus Police Department Officer Brian Voyles who participates in the program. “I am looking forward to getting to know some of the new students and visiting with the returning students.”

Homework with an Officer will be held Mondays from 4 p.m. until 5 p.m. at Arbors at the Water’s Edge Apartments Clubhouse at 4060 North County Road 150 West and on Tuesdays from 4 p.m. until 5 p.m. at Candlelight Village Mobile Home Park’s Clubhouse at 3671 Candlelight Drive.

The program that started in Columbus in 2012 allows officers the opportunity to interact with students from kindergarten to 8th grade.

There is no charge to attend the program.

At this time face masks will be required.
