The Massachusetts State Police posted the following along with the pictures of the little girl identified as “Cosette” in her black Police Shirt and hat holding her “K-9” along with the rest of her classmates and Troopers who visited the class.
A girl can be anything she wants to be, including a Police Officer.
3-year-old Cosette chose what she calls a “Massachusetts Police K-9 Girl” as her dress up costume for her library group gathering. The girls group had been instructed to dress up as what they wanted to be when they grow up. Many of the girls came dressed as Disney princesses and they singled out their classmate as not being as cool as them.
Upon hearing of this, Trooper Tronca and Trooper McLaughlin of the State Police Barracks in South Boston, paid a visit to this heartbroken little girl and spent time telling her and the other children at her school that girls can be police officers. Her classmates were very receptive and long discussions about Ninja Turtles, Captain America and their important craft projects followed.
