Teens, cops, and conversation over pizza creates new connection; Department thanks local business for sponsoring unique opportunity

Friday afternoon, Franklin Police Officers John McClendon and Isaiah Carreon presented Department Commendations to Steve Dzyban and Franciso Corado, with Games Workshop, in Franklin.

Games Workshop recently hosted fostered teens from My Friend’s House, giving them the chance to put their creative skills to work while interacting with store staff and Franklin Police Officers, over dinner. Officer McClendon’s love for building models and the store’s supplies & facilities were a winning combination.

“These guys gave of their time, talent, and money to create connection,” Said Master Patrol Officer McClendon. “Having the opportunity to have some real conversation over pizza with teens in our community, while building models, started some pretty meaningful new friendships, and that’s what it’s all about.”

In addition to commendation certificates, officers presented Dzyban and Corado with Franklin Police Department challenge coins to show their appreciation.
