Duluth Police are working to build relationships with kids in the community.

The Duluth Police Activities League, or DPAL, held its kickoff on Saturday at the Duluth Heritage Sports Center. The project is part of a national program aimed at building relationships and trust between cops and kids.

"Our goal is to get kids to trust us, like us, want to be around us, and not just see us as 'Oh, someone must have done something bad,'" said Community Officer Tom Sewell. "We're there for the good, too."

Sewell said DPAL will be teaming up with Jungle Boy Boxing to host a fitness camp for kids in August. More information about the program is available on their Facebook page.
