Members from the Royals, Kansas City Power & Light and the Kansas City Police Department gathered at Wheatley Elementary School on Friday, May 18th to unveil their Cops are Tops baseball card partnership.
Over one hundred fourth and fifth grade students heard motivational speeches from Royals legends Amos Otis and Dennis Leonard, as well as representatives from KCP&L and KCPD. After the presentations, each student was given a set of Tops baseball cards.
The Cops are Tops program is designed to promote positive interactions between the police and community. Each KCPD officer and KCP&L line worker will carry Tops baseball cards with them and encourage students to ask for the cards when they see police officers in their neighborhoods.
