Windsor Park Elementary students took a break from their normal classroom routine this morning to find out more about how the war on drugs is being fought.
The kids getting a hands on lesson from a Nueces County Sheriff's deputy on how to work all the sirens and lights inside his patrol unit.
The Department of Public Safety brought it's helicopter over to explain how they help find the bad guys.
This was all part of red ribbon week at the school.
An opportunity for Customs and Border patrol agents to also explain to the students why and how they do their jobs.
The lawmen were hoping to make sure the kids have a healthy respect for officers and stay drug free.
We wondered if the kids understood the message and here's what they told us.
Carson Cable is a 2nd grader and told us,"Drugs are bad for you they can really make you sick and you would have to go to the hospital and they would be very bad."
Victoria Gibson, a 1st grader at Windsor Park gave us two good reasons to avoid drugs,"Because you could go to jail and get sick."
Miss Gibson is one of the students in Mrs. Mojica's first grade class.
They all posed for a picture in front of that DPS helicopter to remember this day and remember to say no to drugs.
