PELHAM, Ga. (WALB) - The Pelham Police Department is doing its part to reduce crime, and keep kids in school and off the street. 

For the last two days, Pelham law enforcement have been in several classrooms building relationships with students, but most importantly educating students on the importance of not acting out violent crimes.  

The entire 8th grade class at Pelham Middle School was able to participate in a S.T.Y.L.E event hosted by the Pelham Police Department.  

Officials said S.T.Y.L.E stands for Successful Tips for Youth on Law Enforcement Encounters. Students were able to act out mock scenarios that mirror incidents that happen on a daily basis. 

Law enforcement leaders said the third annual event was created to bridge the gap between kids and officers while keeping them on the right track.  

Students acted out domestic violence situations, traffic stops, shootings, and other events
