Raytown Police Partner with Kansas City Royals in ‘Cops are Topps’ Baseball Card Program
Raytown, MO – The 2015 World Series Champion Kansas City Royals have donated 300 packs of Topps baseball cards for Raytown Police Officers to distribute to the youth in the Raytown community as part of the “Cops are Topps” program. Distributing the baseball cards is one of many opportunities to foster positive interactions between police and the community, especially youth. While supplies last, officers will be giving the cards out during routine patrol activities, as well as upcoming special events. Children are encouraged to ask for baseball cards from police officers, but only if the police car emergency lights are not activated.
