Gresham police cadets take in Girls Night In
Gresham Police Department cadets joined more than 60 students for H.B. Lee Middle School's Girls Night In — a fun event designed to provide a safe place for students held Friday, Nov. 17.
Activities included sports, hair and makeup, yoga, karaoke, team building workshops, dancing, crafts, self-defense and inspirational messages from female role models. The goal was to empower the girls who attended through the development of stronger self-esteem, positive self-image and healthy relationships.
Gresham's Cadet Unit is assigned to the operations division of the police department. Cadets, who are between 15 and 20 years old, take an active role by participating in police ride-alongs, traffic patrols, records management and crime prevention.
