SCOTCH PLAINS/FANWOOD, NJ -- The Scotch Plains-Fanwood PAL will again host its Cops & Kids intramural program for students in grades 5 through 8. The first two dates have been announced for Terrill Middle School: Tuesday, Feb. 20, and Tuesday, March 13.

"The idea is to get kids off their video games and participate in some lightly competitive programs with their friends and the police officers who serve our great community," said Scotch Plains Police Chief Ted Conley. 

Officers from both the Scotch Plains and Fanwood police departments will participate in the program.

"The program is an opportunity to build relationships between kids and the officers by seeing them in a different light," said Fanwood Police Chief Richard Trigo.

Dates have yet to be finalized for Park Middle School.
