    Elaine, I really enjoyed your article! Once we are a bit further along would love to talk with you about the partnership we have with Burlington, NC Police Department. We have recently trained 4 Community Outreach Officers in the Positive Parenting Program, which they plan to use to partner with parents in their neighborhood 'beats'.
