A celebration of law enforcement and kids coming together as one team!

For over a decade, The Cal Ripken, Sr. Foundation has been committed to improving relationships between law enforcement and at-risk youth through our signature programming called Badges for Baseball, a juvenile crime prevention initiative.

Remarkable things occur every day throughout our country when members of the community and law enforcement team up to make a difference. With your help, we can continue to shine a light on communities united, not divided.

The Cal Ripken, Sr. Foundation is launching the #TeamCopsandKids initiative to celebrate positive community policing across the country. Through the #TeamCopsandKids initiative, the Ripken Foundation aims to reinforce the power of law enforcement coming together with the communities they serve.

We want to hear from YOU! Tell us about positive relationships between cops and kids you have witnessed in your community.

Join #TeamCopsandKids and share your story with us!
