– Milliken police hosted a ropes course for local kids to help them build trust with law enforcement and overcome their fears. Putting the kids through the ropes course is the brainchild of Milliken Police Chief Benito Garcia.
"They get to build trust and relationships with our police officers. That's what makes it important to me — building that relationship with our youth,"
Part of the goal is to teach kids about making an effort and overcoming difficult challenges .As part of the program, kids are also learning about suicide prevention, drug and alcohol abuse, and mental illness.
