BREVARD COUNTY • COCOA, FLORIDA – Cocoa police officers and department staff departed the police department early Tuesday morning on a bus filled with 25 children bound for Walt Disney World.
The trip was made possible through a partnership with Disney and the police department’s non-profit, Cocoa Community First.
For many of the children, it is their first time ever visiting the theme park. Disney sponsored the children and the adult chaperones and Cocoa Community First provided meals and snacks for the day.
“The purpose of this trip is to connect with these kids and to let them know we recognize they are doing good things,” said Community Resource Officer Chris Hattaway, who worked with Disney to coordinate the trip.
The children were selected by local school principals and were identified by teachers and staff at the schools for working hard and for positive behavior.
The trip is made every year during the summer before the children return to school.
