LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) – High flying excitement and a knock out message--that's the motto Plano police officers bring to a group of excited kids at Kurth Primary Friday.

Officers entertained kids with a high flying trampoline and martial arts show.

In efforts to stop bullying, they tell youngsters, "be a buddy, not a bully."

"We're delivering an important message. Today, we'll be talking about choices and consequences. I'm going to encourage the students to make three important life choices; to choose to do the right thing, choose their friends carefully and choose to be drug free," said Christopher Brianez, with the Plano Police Department.

The officers received a grant to cover all of Lufkin ISD.

They plan to visit every elementary school.
