La Crosse Police visit elementary school for 'Color with a Cop'

Police department and elementary school join for 'Color with a Cop' day

LA CROSSE, Wis. (WKBT) - Area kids got the chance to color with a cop Thursday in La Crosse.

Members of the La Crosse Police Department volunteered their time to stop by Hamilton Elementary to help with some art projects.

They also donated coloring books and art supplies to the school.

It's part of the department's ongoing effort to be active in the community and engage with area kids.

"We try and connect with all different areas of the community, and the little guys we love to be with because they're so happy and excited and asking questions and they want to know about us, and it's a good chance for us to get to know them and connect with them," said Officer Whitney Hughes.

The department started the project last year as a book drive and story time before changing it up this year with the coloring and art supply drive.
