Badges & Baseball is a sports camp designed to engage our Kings with law enforcement officers at an early age.
In this one day camp, Kansas City Police Department officers teach the fundamentals of baseball, but more importantly, they teach the proper protocol when interacting with law enforcement. The highlight of Badges & Baseball is typically the “Question & Answer” session.
Deputy Executive Director Merrell Bennekin and Violent Crimes Officer Jerry Grubb are the champions of this event within the Kansas City Police Department and they both agree that it is critically important that African American boys have positive interactions with police officers at an early age.
