Cops on the Court’s goals are to:
  • Build trust and understanding between at-risk youth and police officers by bringing youth into regular contact with police officers in a positive and neutral setting
  • Keep kids off the streets and out of trouble by providing them with a positive alternative and meaningful connections to positive role models
  • Curtail neighborhood crime, violence, and gang participation
