Persons, Manners and Customs, Peace Officers, Police Teachers in card shark costumes, teachers with mustachios, a la handlebar and ghostlike teachers in white all promenaded to lend enthusiasm and zest to the Hancock School System lower grades Halloween parade down Quincy St. Friday afternoon. Who says the law enforcement boys don't like legitimate and entertaining Halloween displays? Not Chief Fred Paulson, left, and Sgt. Joseph Karry.
