NCI Students work with Eastlake Police

When Eastlake Police Chief Larry Reik and two detectives arrived at Willoughby-Eastlake School’s Northern Career Institute on Oct. 16, it wasn’t due to any trouble.Reik and Detectives Kris Korun and Pat Krozcak along with Eastlake Mayor Dennis Morley were delivering pizza and doughnuts for the students in NCI’s auto body program to show their appreciation for the work the students did in painting a van to be used by SWAT.

The city has found it mutually beneficial to the city and the students to work on collaborative projects such as this.

The mayor, police chief, and school administrator all agree that collaborations between Eastlake and NCI not only builds relationships between the students and the police but also provides financial benefits with the cost savings from the students doing the work.
