Baton Rouge Police hold day camp events for area children

BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - Baton Rouge Police were out on Friday to engage some of the younger members of the community with the second Cops Day Care Camp.

BRPD officers read books and played games with kids, as well as teaching them about bully prevention, as well as allowing the children to interact with some of the K-9 units.

The camps are free of charge, and are led by the men and women of the BRPD, along with Chief Carl Dabadie.

"This is an ongoing thing that we'll have to do every year in order to keep the communication going between us and this generation," said Police Chief Dabadie.

Two more camps are planned this summer. One on July 17 at the Greater Carmel Baptist Church in Scottlandville, and on July 31 at Central Baptist Church on Florida Boulevard.
