Roller Skating Police Officers

JULY 18, 2005 -- Wilmington police officers prefer to meet children for the first time when they're smiling, not when they're in handcuffs. That's the reason for Cop Camp.

Monday, ten- and eleven-year-old children went roller skating with officers.

The free camp continues Tuesday when the children and the officers will go bowling. Friday they head to Myrtle Beach.

All of this is aimed at breaking down the barriers between Wilmington kids and the police officers who seek to keep them safe.
