2019 Annual Report

Badges With Books The Fort Worth Police Bike Support Group is proud to sponsor Badges With Books, a collaborative initiative with the police department. Officers are able to provide books to children in their respective neighborhoods; the books are generously donated from members of the Fort Worth community. Officers are encouraged to provide a book to a child in their neighborhood, take a moment to discuss the last book the child read, and to

read a portion of the book with the child. Re- search shows that reading aloud to a child im- proves literacy and ensures the child is more likely to develop a love of reading on their own. On Oct. 2, Badges With Books provided 12 boxes of books for officers to provide to chil- dren. Decals of Badges With Books will be ap- plied to patrol cars.
