Wisconsin Police Hand Out Brewers Baseball Cards to Local Youths
Officers from the Manitowoc Police Department will be handing out Milwaukee Brewers baseball cards in a program designed to cultivate relationships between police and local youth. Players will be pictured on the front, while card backs will contain crime prevention tips. More than 30 cards are included in the set.
The goal of the program is to build the relationships using a familiar subject-matter so that city youth will not be apprehensive when they need to seek help and also to make them more aware of issues they could face. By collecting cards from police officers in the neighborhood, the idea is that youth will get more comfortable around the officials.
The Brewers Police sets are an annual event in various Wisconsin communities. Sets have been produced for more than two decades and are interesting oddball additions for player collectors and Brewers fans.
