Brent: Does everyone know what’s about to happen today? Kids: Dude. be nice! Brent: We’re at Heritage High School
in Brentwood, California. My favorite city because my name is Brent. We’re going to say thanks to a guy
that doesn’t get the recognition he deserves. His name is: Kids: Officer Mitch! Brent: Get ready. Brent: Who’s that guy? Alyssa: Currently, Officer Mitch is standing right behind me and he has no idea what we’re about to do for him today. Officer Mitch is our school resource officer. His job is to make sure everybody is safe. Chandler: At first, people are a little nervous
when they see Officer Mitch. But once you have that first conversation with him you realize that he’s a really cool dude
who really wants what’s best for the community. Brent: I don’t know him, he doesn’t know me,
so for me to say, “Hey, you’re amazing,” he probably doesn’t care, but coming from you guys
that is what makes this really special and important. Gogo: He gets down to our level he’s just like a friend,
I don’t know how to explain it. Recently, police officers haven’t been the most popular. but Mitch is the complete opposite. Sophie: Most people may fee like they should fear cops but he’s that cool person you can talk to. Brent: Do you think he’ll fall for, ”Hey, I’m Brent from the Brentwood Press?”
How’s that sound? Mitch: So my name is Mitch Brouillette. I promised myself two things
when I became a police officer: Not to be a jerk and I’ll never let myself get fat. I want them to know me but
also know who I am as person so my whole thing is I treat them with respect but they gotta give respect back. Daylen: One time that he actually helped me out last year I was struggling with my anger problems
and I was struggling so hard in school. How he helped me, we actually worked out in the weight room and that actually helped me relieve a lot stress. Mitch: There’s always a good side to somebody. The worst thing I could do on campus
is actually arrest a kid. For them to be successful with me, I want to see them walk the stage,
I want to see them graduate. Daylen: I just really want to thank him for helping me become the best man I’ve ever been. Brent: And so today is about him. Do you guys think he has any clue?
I don’t think he does. Sophie: So Office Mitch is really involved “I Can Help” which is a thing to delete negativity
off of social media. What’s going to happen is Sienna
is going to have a really bad video that is exposed on social media. So she’s going to be called into the office and so when he has to watch that video it’s going to be a thank you video we put together for him. Brent: Do any of you feel bad at all for pranking Mitch? Sienna: No! Heck no! So then he’s going to come out
and the song “Downtown” is gonna go on and that’s one of his favorite songs. Chandler: Basically the music video for “Downtown”,
we’re reenacting it. We wanted to say thank you to Officer Mitch
in a really cool way so we decided to get him softballs
and write thank you notes because he’s on a police department softball team and they’re national ranked or something like that. This one says,
”Not all heroes wear capes, thank you for all you’ve done for us, Officer Mitch.” We gonna toss them to him on stage. Mitch: I’m a big sports guy. I’m all Miami: Miami Dolphins Miami Heat The Marlins We’re gonna give him tickets to his
favorite basketball team: Miami Heat. We’re gonna give him a Dan Marino signed jersey. Brent: This is some good stuff right here. I’m excited. Julia: He really just wants to serve others
and be there for students and he puts others before himself. Brent: Alright, lets get ready and this thing starts going down
in about 30 minutes! Mitch: …if they give me a thumbs down, it’s bad — Vice Principal: Will you come in my office for a second? Mitch: Duty calls. Vice Principal: So here’s the deal: There’s a video that Sienna took at a party, Mitch: UGH Vice Principal: She’s in my office, she’s just sitting there. Mitch: Relax, why are you shaking, relax. Vice Principal: So, he’s gotta look at the video. Alright? Video: Committed. Passionate. Video: Caring. Loving…
Mitch: YOU SUCK. Video: Thanks, Officer Mitch, for all the things that you do for us. For being a good cop
and a better person in general. Sienna: Hey Officer Mitch,
I hope you know by now that I’m not actually in trouble, we just wanted to show you how much we appreciate you. Mitch: Ahhhh. That’s not even fair. Brent: How’d it go?
Mitch: That was great, man. That was bad. Brent: You know what, though?[Cheering]Brent: It’s not over yet. Mitch: Ah man.Music: I’m headed downtown…Chant: I believe that Mitch is great! Crowd: I believe that Mitch is great! You make an environment where
we feel accepted and wanted. You’re always out there to support us and what we wanna do is we actually got you some gifts. We know you love the Miami Heat So, we got you some tickets! Brent: We’re not done yet.
A Dan Marino Jersey! I think what these guys are trying to tell you is that you’re making a huge impact on this campus. Chant: I believe that Mitch is great! Crowd: I believe that Mitch is great!
