The Rancho Cordova Police Department (RCPD) launched a new, innovative program to build positive relationships with local students. Two police officers are assigned to every Rancho Cordova school where they get to know the students. Through a partnership with school administrators, students are recognized once per month for academic performance, good behavior, and regular attendance. During an outdoor assembly on May 18th, eleven Cordova Meadows Elementary School Kindergarteners received certificates of recognition, and three lucky students were awarded new bikes that they bid on using Cub Cash that they earned. Students earn Cub Cash by living the school values of “I Care,” “I Appreciate,” and “I Perform” and by showing empathy toward others. “Good Day Sacramento” joined in the fun by broadcasting live from the school and interviewing the students. Over 300 students have been recognized since the program launched in fall 2015.
