Like every day this winter, it was cold Friday,  February 27, but Kate McMaster of Erie and HACE COPPS officers warmed things up a little for Housing Authority Children.

Caps, Kids, and COPPS

McMaster makes the hats as a hobby and then gives them to COPPS officers to distribute.

On Friday COPPS officers gave these knitted caps to about  ten children at the GECAC Head Start Program at Lake City Dwellings.  The officers were reading to the children as well, and the young residents had a chance to ask the COPPS officers about police work.

The officers pass out the hats throughput public housing, on daily patrols, and also at various youth programs.

COPPS officers have passed out about 50 caps this winter.
