ROCKFORD (WIFR) -- Rockford police are joining forces with the Salvation Army to encourage kids to read.
The salvation army is giving over 700 books to local head start programs.
On Thursday kids at the Fairgrounds Complex picked out what they liked best. Then police officers went back to their classrooms to read with them.
Officers also signed their names to let the kids know they have a friend in the department now.
The same program is taking place at the head start location at Orton Keyes on Tuesday.
