Law Enforcement Friendships
Building relationships with the youth and local law enforcement officers
This program is not off the ground yet. But we have been in communication with the local police department about it. They have expressed interest and excitement at the opportunity to positively impact the lives of the youth in this town.
The program will be launched once we have video game systems in here as well as pool tables, foosball and air hockey tables. The basis will be that local law enforcement officers will come in, spend time with the members, interact with them and play games with them. They will be meeting the youth on their level and building relationships with them. The basis and goal of this program is to foster these relationships and have them think twice when considering an action that could get them into trouble. The hope is that the thought of disappointing this officer who has become a friend will help them make the right decisions.
Funding is still needed for the systems and tables before we can get this one off the ground.
