Fleet­wood Girl Scout Ju­nior Troop 1793 earned their De­tec­tive badge.

One of the troop dads is a De­tec­tive for the Read­ing Po­lice Depart­ment. De­tec­tive Perkins came to their troop meet­ing and dis­cussed safety, what a de­tec­tive does, what ev­i­dence and DNA is.

He set up a crime scene and the girls were the de­tec­tives! They wore gloves on their hands and booties over their shoes and col­lected ev­i­dence. They swabbed their ev­i­dence for prints and learned the ins and outs of what it means to be a de­tec­tive.

They asked a lot of great ques­tions about what he does.

At their next meet­ing, the girls will dis­cuss a lit­tle about Morse code to fin­ish up their badge.
