In 2007 the Brooklyn Park Police Department commissioned the Police Executive Research Forum to research crime trends in the City of Brooklyn Park, with a specific focus on violent crimes. The study indicated that juvenile crime in the area was disproportionately high. As a result, the Department began a Youth Violence Prevention Initiative and started looking for ways to engage with disconnected and marginalized youth in activities to promote positive relationships and develop lifelong skills.
We recognize that it takes many partners to make our programs effective and achieve our goals. In 2009 we began the first annual Cops N Kids Fishing Tournament. Each year this event has impacted the lives of over 100 disconnected youth. In 2015 a major sponsor of the Tournament was unable to fulfill its commitment and it appeared as though the event would not go on.
We reached out to the Luther Brookdale Auto Dealerships, describing the event and the dire situation we found ourselves in. Collectively, the dealerships recognized the value in their partnership and made this event a priority, allowing the Tournament to go on uninterrupted. They have subsequently become key partners by supporting this event annually.
The Luther Brookdale Auto Dealerships are commended for their commitment to our community and for their willingness to partner with the Department in an effort to build positive relationships with our youth. They have paved the way with their dedication to corporate social responsibility and clearly understand that they can positively influence social well being. Thank you!
