Cops and Hoops
About the Program
Recognizing the need for healing and connection between the community and the police force, especially after working in Braddock with many children affected by the Antwon Rose shooting and other accounts of police brutality, ILS partnered with the Pittsburgh police to create the initiative called Cops & H.O.O.Ps.
Within this program, restorative circles are facilitated engaging police officers and children together. Positive activities are incorporated with the officers to provide them the space to form positive relationships and process the children’s potential fears.
