High Five Replacement In Northampton

A replacement is being announced to  the cancelled "High Five Friday" program participated in by Northampton  police officers.  

Northampton Public Schools put an end to the event  earlier this year due to concern from some parents including that some  children might have negative impressions of law enforcement.  

District  officials said Monday there will be a permanent police liaison at  Northampton elementary schools, which have not had an outreach program  since DARE was cancelled several years ago. 

That had been one of the  options being considered by the police chief and superintendent in  March.
