Chino PD to Launch “Cops and Kids” Program at Elementary Schools

Post Date:04/13/2017 11:15 AM

Chino Police Officers will be making their presence known in a positive way at local elementary school campuses with a new program called “Cops and Kids.”

The program, which is anticipated to launch in the middle of April, is designed to promote trusting relationships between school-age children and police officers by having informal interactions during recess and lunch times. Patrol officers will have the opportunity to meet with the children and participate in some of the activities that occur during those break times. This will allow the children to interact with officers in a casual and comfortable setting where they see that officers have a human side behind the badge as well.

The program is being implemented at elementary schools in Chino, in collaboration with the Chino Valley Unified School District.

For inquiries about the Cops and Kids program contact Corporal McIver at 909.334.3069 or kmciver@chinopd.org
