MARGATE POLICE OFFICERS GIVE BACK-TO-SCHOOL RANDOM ACT OF COPNESS


MARGATE— Last month, officers of the Margate Police Department stepped up and gave back to the children in the region as they head back to school this year in a RANDOM ACT OF COPNESS.

On Aug. 8, Margate Police Officers helped a group of teens from the “Tools for School” initiative as they packed backpacks with school supplies that will be given to kids in the area. Margate Police Lt. Lee, Sgt. Swift, Officer Fane and Officer Heath, along with Special Law Enforcement Officer II’s Campbell, Szapor and Roscoe, helped prepare 2,000 backpacks to give back to the youth as they head back to the classroom this school year. The officers said the backpacks will help kids start the school year with the tools they need to be set up for success!

“It is always a positive experience when our law enforcement and community partners work together with projects in their community.  A project such as this, that is participated in by officers of the Margate Police Department allows the public and area youth to interact with our law enforcement partners in a harmonious atmosphere,” said Atlantic County Prosecutor’s Office Chief of County Investigators Bruce K. DeShields.

Margate Police Chief Matthew Hankinson said community activities like the “Tools for School” backpack initiative is all a part of a greater initiative to involve the community in everything that the Margate Police Department does to give back.

Thank you to the members of the Margate Police Department for paying it forward to the youth of the community with this Random Act of Copness!
