Cedar Falls Police providing books to students

Posted: Updated:
KWWL -

Target Corporation has awarded the Cedar Falls Police Department with a grant used to sustain an annual reading program. 

The Cedar Falls Police Department used the grant money to buy a book for every kindergarten student in the Cedar Falls School district, including Saint Patrick's Catholic School and Valley Lutheran Schools. 

This week, a Cedar Falls Officer visited each kindergarten class to read the book to students. Over 500 kindergarten students are served annually by the reading program. 

The Cedar Falls Police Department uses this as an opportunity to team up with Target and the school system to educate and provide a positive experience for students while spending time with police officers.
