For take your kid to work day I went to the Vancouver Police department. I went with my Dad and sister. I knew a few people there from my hockey team as well. First we got a presentation about what it is like to be a police officer from the chief. Then we got to look at the some of the police gear. There was body armor, guns, and night vision goggles. After that we got to eat lunch which was pizza and there were also lots of snacks. Right after lunch we got to shoot pistols. To end the day off we looked at replica guns and learned about different types of drugs and got to see some drugs in person.
