Kids, Cops and Hoops—Basketball with Cops!

 

Free annual event promotes interaction between community youth and Avon Police Department

 

Beginning Tuesday, November 28, the Avon Police Department will be hosting the annual Kids, Cops, and Hoops program at Avon Elementary School for students in grades 4 through 12. It will run every Tuesday night from 4:30 to 5:30 p.m. The free program will continue through April 9, 2024. 

 

This program offers a great opportunity for our community youth to meet and interact with Avon police officers in a fun, positive mentoring atmosphere. Kids, Cops and Hoops helps to foster relationships between law enforcement and youth and aids in future success of crime prevention. In years past, 15 to 20 students participated in the basketball program.   There is no cost or registration required to participate, just arrive with a parent or guardian the first night you join us and sign a participation waiver. 

 

The officers at the Avon Police Department look forward to a fun and energetic program!  See you at the gym!

 

For more information, please contact Officer Brad Stamp with the Avon Police Department at 970-748-4040 or bstamp@avon.org
