Indianapolis P.D. Teaching NRA’s Eddie Eagle

posted on January 14, 2017

“We sing along with the kids and we keep singing along to make sure they remember what we have taught them.” That’s Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department (IMPD) officer Vincent Stewart talking about how his department is working to teach local kids a valuable lesson. 

The IMPD has been offering the Eddie Eagle GunSafe® Program to elementary school students, and has taken the presentation to 20 schools to date. Eddie Eagle is NRA’s widely acclaimed program that teaches younger children what to do if they ever come across a gun. 

Stewart was instrumental in bringing the program to Indianapolis kids, and his goal is to reach them when they’re younger. “My hope and my prayer is that they go home, they’re still singing that song, it catches their parents attention, and that the parent and the child can have a meaningful conversation about gun safety because we do realize that there are a lot of guns in a lot of households,” he said.
