Chief Carter Visits W.E. Parker Elementary

web posted January 18, 2019

011819wepEDGEFIELD - Second grade students at W. E. Parker Elementary School had a welcomed visit from Edgefield Police Chief Ronnie Carter on Wednesday, January 9.  He spoke with the students about his job responsibilities and his 27 year career. 
Chief Carter has been protecting citizens in Edgefield County his entire career.  Edgefield is home to him and dear to him; he has never wanted to work anywhere else.  His favorite part of the job is being able to help people in our community.
Carter emphasized the importance of having empathy for others.  He explained, “Just because someone has had run-ins with the sheriff’s department does not mean they are bad people; it just means they have made some bad choices.” 
The students asked numerous interesting questions.  One student asked, “Have you ever been tased or had to tase someone yourself?  Chief Carter was tased as part of his training.  Surprisingly, he has never had to tase anyone himself.
Carter’s message was not only about his career as a law enforcement officer.  He impressed upon the students the importance of making good choices now and thinking about how their choices affect other people.  This positive community leader, working with WEP, is one more way we are growing our students to create world class citizens.
