The Moore, Oklahoma Police Department just took community policing to a whole new level. Officers are stepping in as substitute teachers due to staff shortages.
In a post on Facebook, the department said:
"Moore PD is a proud community partner of Moore Public Schools. This week, several on-duty officers are serving in the classroom as schools continue to face teacher and staff shortages. Today, officers Stromski and Lewis covered 6th grade classes at Apple Creek Elementary. Additional officers are serving Houchin and Broadmoore. We are thankful to be able to assist our community during these difficult times."
