The Milpitas Police Department has kicked off its new "Character Counts!" education program for Milpitas public and private school fifth grade students. This custom-developed program emphasizes the importance of trustworthiness, respect, responsibility, fairness, caring, and citizenship in a person's life, referring to them as the six pillars of character.

Officer Mark Doyle teaches a curriculum that encourages living law-abiding lives and addresses the dangers of tobacco, alcohol, street drugs, bullying, and gangs to our Milpitas youth.

The first class of twenty-two fifth grade participants celebrated their completion of the program at Saint John the Baptist School on Thursday, October 20th. Student Neena Hill earned the Most Inspirational award for her leadership and participation.
