Chino PD to Launch “Cops and Kids” Program at Elementary Schools
Chino, Calif. – Chino Police Officers will begin positively engaging with children 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 elementary 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 break times. This will allow the children to interact with officers in a casual, familiar setting and allow them to see that officers have a human side as well.
The program is being implemented at elementary schools in Chino, in collaboration with the Chino Valley Unified School District.
