Kids & Cops is Stand T.A.L.L.'s latest collaborative program with the Boys & Girls Club
Built as a collaborative with the Boys & Girls Club, Kids & Cops provides hundreds of youth with an opportunity to engage in a positive interaction with law enforcement. STAND T.A.L.L. is raising funds to directly pay for uniformed, off-duty police officers to be at the Boys & Girls Club to meet and greet the children as they arrive on buses from their respective schools. Inside the Club, police, in addition to enhancing security for the children, will focus on establishing better relationships with them by helping with homework, listening to their concerns, sharing in friendly conversations and when asked, offer a helping hand with solutions to problems some may be facing. Kids & Cops is a bridge-building program that began in early April 2018 and, depending on funding, will continue through the Club’s summer program.
