Tallahassee, FL - Public service took on a new meaning for some law enforcement officers and public officials Tuesday morning.

Tallahassee police officers, Leon County Sheriff's deputies, and Tallahassee firefighters read to students at Kate Sullivan Elementary School. It was a part of Florida's "Celebrate Literacy Week".

Participants say it was also a chance to bond with students and teach them about their career fields.

Thomas Stege with the Leon County Sheriff's Office says, "It was great. It was great to go in there and read the books to the kids. They were real excited to see us in there. We enjoyed reading with them and answering questions about the books and about being in law enforcement."

"Celebrate Literacy Week" kicked off Monday. This is the 6th year celebrated in Florida school.
