We were honored to accept the Meritorious Service Award from the Kansas City Missouri Police Department in honor of our Badges for the Basics program. Presenting the award is Chief Rick Smith who encouraged Officer Vito Mazzara to head up this program. We have worked with Officer Mazzara who has grown the program in amazing ways.
"Officer Mazzara does product giveaways regularly in areas that come up as trouble spots in the division’s weekly crime meetings. In just one year, Badges for Basics served more than 1,400 families.
Badges for Basics has been so successful that Officer Mazzara is working with police departments in other cities to help them implement something similar."
