Helping our youth
every step of the way!
Welcome to Ohio Cops for Kids
The mission of Ohio Cops for Kids is to improve the quality of life for the youth of our communities, throughout the state of Ohio, through educational and recreational activities, working hand in hand with law enforcement throughout the state.
We want to lead our future generation forward with a respect for law enforcement. We want our children to be confident interacting with our law enforcement in any environment. We provide financial assistance upon request to law enforcement agencies for activities and events that involve kids of all ages. Programs provided are: Shop With a Cop, Bucks for Boots, Recreational activities and Scholarships to name a few.
Ohio Cops for Kids also provides teddy bears to local and statewide law enforcement agencies, EMS, and children services to be given to kids involved in a traumatic situations. Grant applications are forwarded with the teddy bears for obtaining funds for current or future projects that involve youth in the area.ds
