Online Educational Talks -

Chinese American Parent Association of Howard County (CAPA-HC) is holding weekly zoom online talks for school age children since April 9.


The Twenty-first session will be held on Thursday September 24. Our Howard County Police officers PFC Stella Dieu and CPL Marc Lay will present "Working with Police 101". The suggested audience is 6-12 graders. Adults are welcome too.


Cpl Marc Lay has been with Howard County Police Department (HCPD) for almost 21 years. He has worked in Patrol, Special Assignment Section, Executive Protection Unit, Warrant/Fugitive Unit, and is currently in the Community Outreach Section. Pfc Stella Dieu has been with HCPD for over 8 years. She worked dayshift and night shift Patrol and is currently Asian Liaison Officer in the Community Outreach Section. We appreciate the service and dedication of our police officers. We will learn about how police officers handle various situations and how residents can cooperate with police officers to make HoCo a better home for all of us.


At this difficult time of COVID-19 pandemic, we hope the regularly scheduled talks can help parents and students with the home-school and distance learning plans. We want to thank Howard County Community Organizations Active in Disaster (COAD) for sponsoring this activity. 


Please ask your students to join the zoom meeting on Thursday, September 24th at 4pm.
