Police Youth Alliance
Since 2015, the FBBCF has spearheaded an original citywide initiative called the "Police Youth Alliance." Aimed at cultivating positive relationships and interactions between police officers and the children in the communities they serve, PYA puts uniformed officers in local schools to engage in student-friendly activities such as gardening, chess, step, reading, drumline, and carpentry.
