HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF) -

Huntsville police officers gave back to the kids who stay out of trouble on Friday.

School resource officers wrapped up their annual camp for fifth and sixth graders with a beach themed party on Friday. For the past 17 years, officers have held this free camp for students recommended by their principals, administrators and S-R-Os. Students got to take field trips and see how police work with K-9s and medflight. They said they feel safe knowing officers are with them at school.

"The SRO officers are very nice, they're very productive and they're very safe," said one student, Colin Shager.

"We played dodgeball with them yesterday, and we've talked to them and got to learn about them and it was just so much fun," said another student, Sammy Sledd.

"They deserve it," said Patrick Salvail, a SRO with Huntsville Police. "These kids have been acting like they're expected to throughout the school year, and this is a way for us to reward them for doing what's right."

The Madison County Commission helped with costs, as well as many food sponsors.
