23 News’ Operation Safer Streets program is teaming up with the Rockford Police Department to bring you Cops on the Block. It’s an opportunity for citizens to meet the police officers who protect their streets. Families will get to see some of the latest police technology and there will be activities and snacks for the kids.
What happens at Cops on the Block? Police arrive at a neighborhood recently targeted by criminals, barricade the street -- and then the real fun begins. See what the inside of a squad car looks like. Meet officers and learn ways to make our streets safer. Cops on the Block harkens back to the days of beat cops – walking the streets, meeting neighbors and protecting our families.
Watch 23 News for the next Operation Safer Streets – Cops on the Block event. There’ll be 6 dates throughout the summer. Events will be on Wednesday from noon until 2:00pm. We’ll let you know where during Tuesday’s 23 News at 10 and Wednesday’s 23 News This Morning. 23 News will broadcast live from the Cops on the Block during 23 News at Noon.
