Students at Yardville dressed in blue and saluted to pay tribute to Hamilton Township police.

Students at Yardville Elementary School recently wore blue to show support for the Hamilton Township Police Department.

On Jan. 9, National Law Enforcement Awareness Day, students wore blue and gathered to salute police officers as a symbolic way to thank them for their service.

Students gathered in the auditorium after completing a safety evacuation drill to discuss why they were wearing blue. Students then had the opportunity to talk about the ways the township police department supports their school and community.

“It really was a small thing to do for all that the Hamilton police do for us, but we want them to know how appreciative we are,” Principal Elena Manning said.
