Cops, Kids and Reading

One of the most positive initiatives connected with the Bethlehem Police Department is their involvement with the Cops 'n' Kids Reading program.

There's a big event at Looper's Grille & Bar on Saturday, April 24th. It's the 4th Annual Celebration of Reading and it sounds like a lot of fun for kids and their families. The performance schedule between 11 am and 3 pm includes everything from the Parkettes to Kim's Black Belt Academy to different musical groups ranging from bagpipers to The Dirty Sock Funtime Band. The Police Department will be there, of course, as will the Mounted Patrol Unit. Even the Peeps Mobile is going to make an appearance!

Cops 'n' Kids is a national Children's Literacy Program founded by Julia Burney Witherspoon, a police officer from Wisconsin. The dynamo behind the local chapter of the Cops 'n' Kids program is Bev Bradley, an amazing woman. Please do check out the important work that they do. It's quite something.

Here's the poster for the event.
