Kids Get to Know Watertown Officers Over Game of Dodgeball

Watertown Boys & Girls Club – Watertown’s youth had the chance to get to know some of Watertown’s police officers over a friendly game of dodgeball.

The “Cops & Kids” program is a collaboration between the Boys & Girls Club of Watertown and the Watertown Police Department designed to create and strengthen relationships between Watertown’s youngest and the police officers who serve their community.

“The Police Department have been really great partners to the Watertown Boys & Girls Club throughout the year,” said Boys & Girls Club Executive Director Renee Gaudette. “In the summer they really make a special effort to be able to connect with our members and our young people to show them that police are not necessarily figures to fear, but rather figures to build relationships with.”
