HOW WE SOAR
Kids’n Capes, Inc. works to ensure the safety of children in our local communities and communities around the globe.
This is accomplished through our advocacy, education, literacy and intervention programs.
Books for the Beat™ Community Policing & Reading Initiative
Books for the Beat™ Community Policing & Reading Initiative, is a unique initiative designed to bridge literacy and law enforcement. While officers are working their beat, they can build trust and help foster an appreciation for reading.
Books from the Feisty Four Children’s Book Series, C.A.P.E. Curriculum and superhero capes will be provided for children and community police officers. Literacy and advocacy are the foundation for Books for the Beat, which is designed to enhance the community policing experience for both officers and youth.
Designated officers will issue a good “Reading Ticket” when students participate in officer led interactive read alouds, read at home and improve reading performance in school. When students reach these simple goals, they’ll receive a book and a cape!
