BAINBRIDGE, GA (WALB) - Public Safety officers in Bainbridge spent Tuesday morning playing chess with kids in the community.
It is one of many events hosted by the 'Kids N Kops' program.
Officers said that events like this keep kids out of trouble during the summer and also builds strong relationships.
Some educators believe activities like chess can be very helpful for young learners.
"Planning, patience, calculations, sacrifice, computations and all these things will travel not just on that board game. We can use these same strategies and skills in life and the classroom," said Bainbridge High School Assistant Principal David Mackey.
The next 'Kids N Kops' event will be on July 8.
