KIDS PERSPECTIVE: Creative Communication with Cops and Kids
A series designed to give kids a voice!
Tune in as QPTV brings you a cops and kids production on bullying. The show highlights the production’s journey and shows the progress that can be accomplished when police and community join forces to help our youth.
Queens Theatre (of Flushing Meadows Corona Park) provided the instruction and space for the project that brought everyone together to express their challenges, experiences, and/or concerns about bullying in the form of short plays.
The content for the scripts was derived from student submissions in an anti-bullying contest sponsored by the 112 Precinct Community Council, the 112 Precinct, and Patrol Borough Queens North. Participants were local middle, junior high, and high school students, including NYPD Explorers.
Tune in as NYPD Explorers take you on their journey that brings cops and kids together in a play about bullying.
