Announcing #TeamCopsAndKids!

May 08, 2017

Remarkable things occur every day throughout our country when members of the community and law enforcement team up to make a difference. With your help, we can continue to shine a light on communities united, not divided.

The Cal Ripken, Sr. Foundation is launching the #TeamCopsandKids initiative to celebrate positive community policing across the country. Through the #TeamCopsandKids initiative, the Ripken Foundation aims to reinforce the power of law enforcement coming together with the communities they serve.

We want to hear from YOU! Tell us about positive relationships between cops and kids you have witnessed in your community or through your programs. Join #TeamCopsandKids and share your story with us. We encourage you to use the hashtag #TeamCopsAndKids whenever you are sharing posting positive interactions between cops and kids. To see stories others have shared of positive interactions with cops and kids, visit

The Cal Ripken, Sr. Foundation is fortunate to have wonderful partnerships with law enforcement agencies all around the nation, and our Badges for Baseball program would not be possible without their support. These partnerships have made a difference in the lives of thousands of at-risk youth creating relationships that will impact the youth well beyond their participation in the program. The Cal Ripken, Sr. Foundation is grateful to have our law enforcement mentors on #TeamCopsAndKids with us!
