Last week I had the privilege to photograph the 2010 Cops 4 Kids program at Washington Park. Children from The Boys and Girls Club met with Charlottesville Police Officers and were educated on many aspects of the police department. SWAT members let kids try on bullet proof vests, the K9 Unit treated everyone to a show with one of their beautiful dogs, and possibly the biggest hit was children got to climb aboard a police motorcycle! It was heart warming to watch the officers and children interact and develop such positive relationships. I also must mention the mentors and employees from the Boys and Girls Club and what an astonishing relationship they have with the children. I had so much fun volunteering with everyone and hope you enjoy some of the photos!
