Los Angeles: On Friday, August 2, 2002, at 1:00 p.m., the Los Angeles Police Department in conjunction with the Constitutional Rights Foundation and the Los Angeles Unified School District will be presenting a "Cops and Kids" Program at Maclay Middle School, located at 12540 Pierce Street, Pacoima.

The "Cops and Kids" program is designed to forge better relationships between police officers and middle school age students. The program’s goal is to educate young people about the practices of law enforcement and the role of the police in society. It teaches the scope and limits of police authority in our society and constitutional rights. It also motivates individual involvement in projects to improve school safety.

Previously the program was presented at the Los Angeles Convention Center. However, for the first time "Cops and Kids" program will be presented at a San Fernando Valley school. The Los Angeles Police Department is working with the Los Angeles Unified School District and the Constitutional Rights Foundation to expand this program into other San Fernando Valley schools on a regular basis.

Any questions should be directed to Commander Michel R. Moore, Assistant Commanding Officer, Operations-Valley Bureau, 818-756-8305.
