MPPD Start Trading Card Campaign and Window Trends was lucky enough to donate to this wonderful campaign for the children of Morris Plains.
A few of the officers came into our showroom personally to thank us for our donation and gave us a plaque with all the trading cards, which is now hung up in our showroom for everyone to see.
Baseball cards but better, the MPPD wanted to encourage children to come up and say hi with this new game.
Morris Plains police department wanted to encourage the township children to meet local police officers, so they started a "Trading Card Campaign."
The cards are like baseball cards, with a photo of the officer on the front and a short biography on the back. The officers carried the cards while they're were on duty, and the first four children to collect all of them won a prize from Police Chief Jason Kohn.
The program was open for kindergarteners through eighth graders.
These's were the rules they had for the trading card game:
Approach the police officer only when they are not busy.
- When you approach a police officer, do so as if you would any other adult, using words, "excuse me and thank you."
- If the police officer is engaged in conversation, please wait until they are finished.
- Do not chase police cars. If cars drive down your street wait until they stop, or for another opportunity.
- In addition to meeting the officers on the street, many officers spend time at Police Headquarters, so feel free to stop down and meet them.
- There is no deadline for collecting the cards.
Remember, this is a great opportunity to meet the officers of the Morris Plains Police Department. Parents are encouraged to bring the children to meet the officers, however do not pick cards up for your children.
Age range: Kindergarten through 8th Grade only.
