In celebration of the end of Bullying Prevention Week, one Fresno elementary school hosted law enforcement and military members during recess. There were no tricks to the morning event, just treats.

Powers-Ginsburg Elementary students sat in fire engines, talked to police officers, and met a K-9 unit: real-life heroes who don’t tolerate bullying, said the school’s principal, Angela Balliet.
