A new pilot program called "Let's Grow Together" brings officers from the Yonkers Police Department together with local foster youth in an effort to build community relationships.
Here to talk about how the program is going:
- Alan Mucatel, Executive Director of Leake & Watts, the non-profit that started the program;
- Officers Leshannon Hogue and Eric Guisto of the Yonkers Police Department; and
- Local Yonkers teenagers Christian Hurtado and Andrew Perez
Now: 2 police officers, 2 teens and a non-profit head discuss the "Let's Grow Together" program in Yonkers. pic.twitter.com/96wOf7HNhX
