Officers at the Warner Robins Police Department want to be proactive about preventing violence.
At Russell Elementary, students have a new teacher at the front of the room for the next few weeks.
"Good morning!" the fifth graders welcome their instructor, Officer David Sabet.
These students might know all the class rules. Outside of the classroom, however, their decisions now could have a lasting impact.
That's where Officer David Sabet steps in.
"Is it really going to make me cool if I do this?," he asks. "I say, if you want to be cool, turn on the air conditioner. Getting in trouble isn't cool."
He's been teaching the A.D.V.A.N.C.E program for over a decade.
That stands for "avoiding drugs, violence, and negative choices early."
