R.I. State Police recruits help serve those in need

R.I. STATE POLICE recruits recently volunteered at McAuley Village, where homeless single mothers and their children reside and up to 300 Rhode Islanders are fed daily.

Nearly 40 recruits in training for the R.I. State Police recently served the hungry and homeless at McAuley Ministries.

Accompanied by ranking state troopers, the recruits served meals at the McAuley House meal site, painted apartments and landscaped at the McAuley Village transitional housing facility and helped families and children paint pumpkins, which were donated by Schartner Farms, We Share Hope and Four Town Farm in Seekonk.

This was the inaugural effort of a new component of the 22-week training program. Recruits now must complete a community-service project to ensure future troopers are sensitive to the populations they will one day serve.

“Bringing our state police recruits into the community is an important aspect in their overall training,” said Col. Steven O’Donnell, superintendent of the R.I. State Police and commissioner of public safety. “Understanding the diverse issues many of our citizens face will help our recruits in their overall decision-making process when they become troopers.” •
