Here are a few facts we learned about our partners in the police department:
Both officers volunteer after school - Officer Kenyon is the assistant boys lacrosse coach at FHS and Officer Nunley runs the after school basketball program at LMS.
Officer Nunley is a mentor at Providence ES.
Officer Kenyon is the son of two former City of Fairfax Police Officers.
Both officers are in their third year on the force and have local ties to Northern Virginia.
When asked for their goals for the year - both officers had the same list: keep students and staff safe, build relationships with City families and the police department and help students succeed as they grow into adults.
