Children at one Philadelphia school had some special visitors during their lunchtime (WPVI)

In the city's Hunting Park section, it was police pizza day Thursday.

3rd graders from the Steel School on Wayne avenue, were treated to a pizza party, compliments of the 39th police district.

The youngsters had a great time being served pizza and soda by the officers.

Some of the kids even got to sit on a police patrol bicycle.

This was a tasty way of hopefully ensuring that these children know, that police officers are their friend, not just some crusty guy in a uniform with a badge and a gun.
