AVON — On Tuesday, Nov. 14, the Avon Police Department began hosting the seventh annual Kids, Cops and Hoops program at Avon Elementary School for fourth- through 12th-grade students. The program runs every Tuesday night from 4:30 to 6 p.m. and will continue into early spring 2017.

Kids, Cops and Hoops offers an opportunity for community youth to meet and interact with police officers in a fun and positive atmosphere. This program also helps to foster relationships between law enforcement and youth and aids in future success of crime prevention. Last year, 10 to 15 students participated in the basketball program each week.

There is no registration required to participate; students are asked to arrive with a parent or guardian the first night they attend. For more information, contact Avon Police Officer Brad Stamp at 970-748-4040 or bstamp@avon.org.
