(WBNG) -- After the Broome County Sheriff’s office reached out to Broome Tioga BOCES in November 2021 asking if students could help with a project, the final products are here.

On Tuesday, the sheriff’s office picked up the two refurbished traffic control trailers students in BOCES’ auto body program spent five months refurbishing.

During that time, the students alongside their instructor Chad Zadjel worked to repair rusting spots, operated lights and provide a fresh coat of paint.

“Even though they are only 11th and 12th graders, they kind of know that it takes an entire community to get things done and we have the resources at Broome Tioga Boces to do that,” said Zadjel.

Allowing the students to repair the devices, the Broome County Sherrif’s office saved several thousands of dollars.

Broome County Sheriff’s Deputy Robert Stapleton said the speed trailers look brand new.
