LEEP Dream Scholar makes national news in first year with Grand Rapids PD

Posted by: Jennifer Gomori Posted date: April 19, 2019


Grand Rapids Police Officer Austin Lynema is making a very good impression in his first year on the force.

The three-time Law Enforcement Education Program (LEEP) Dream Scholarship recipient gathered a group of fellow Grand Rapids Police Officers and organized a belated birthday party for a local boy who was being bullied.

None of the boy’s classmates showed up to his original ninth birthday party, which Lynema attended.

News of Lynema’s efforts spread quickly with the Grand Rapids Police Department Facebook post being shared more than 15,000 times. For more on this heartwarming story please click on the links below.
