Cops and Kids


Riverside, CA During the week of May 6 - 10, the Riverside Police Department, in partnership with the Riverside Unified School District will host the first annual "Cops and Kids" program to reintroduce Riverside Police Officers to children at the local elementary schools. Uniformed officers will spend approximately 60 minutes at the schools, get treated to lunch and interact with the kids at the identified elementary schools. Officers will speak about safety issues facing young children, display marked police units and related equipment.

The goal of this program is to reach out to young boys and girls, encourage our officers to interact with the local elementary schools and to serve as positive role models for children.

For more information, you can contact Public Education Officer, Felix Medina for school locations, dates and times.
