LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) – Students at Indian Trail Elementary School had a special visit from high-ranking law enforcement officials on Friday. U.S. federal marshals and the special agent in charge of the Louisville FBI, Perry Turner, read to the students as part of America Reads for Kids Day.

"I think it's important for law enforcement to get out into the community, and just let them know we're out there and if we can help, we will," said U.S. Marshal Jim Clark.

It was part of the Read Across America program celebrating Dr. Seuss' 109th birthday this month. It's the second year local law enforcement have come out as a part of America Reads for Kids Day.
