Building Relationships: BPD Officers and the Kids from Teen Empowerment Work to Make the City Safer

Building Relationships: This past week, our officers and the kids from Teen Empowerment got together for one of their regularly scheduled youth/police dialogues. The informal discussions provide the kids and our officers an awesome opportunity to hang out, exchange ideas and get to know each other better. Ultimately, as the relationship grows, our officers and the kids come to realize that, when it comes to making our city the safest city it can be, we have way more in common than uncommon. We all realize great things happen when we all work together and our city’s young people fully understand, epitomize and embrace that idea. And, we can’t thank the kids enough.
