The first day of school is always a mix of emotions. Sadness that summer is over, excitement for the new school year to begin and super fun when the Rockford Police Department shows up for high fives.

We really have a great police department in Rockford. They are always out and about doing fun things in the community and yesterday they were ready to celebrate the first day of school!

You have to love the smiles on all of the faces after high-fiving the officers.
