According to the Arlington Connection, “Brooks says he misses his kids at Swanson Middle School, Barrett Elementary and McKinley Elementary School where he serves as the school resource officer. “I miss the daily interactions, playing games during recess, cards during lunch, trivia fun questions. I hand out candy. Every kid likes candy.” Brooks says he has chosen, “But It’s Not My Fault” by Julia Brooks. “It’s about taking responsibility for your actions and accountability.”

As per Arlington Connection, “Brooks says he likes this book because it has a lot of important messages like if you take responsibility for your actions and make mistakes, you can learn and improve. So far the first two days have had 3,700 views. Next week, Pages with the Police will continue on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday on the ACPD Facebook page.”
