Cops vs. kids on the court

Submitted by on 1, May 6, 2010 – 4:40 amNo Comment

Officers from the Alameda Police Department and students from Alameda High School will be meeting up on the court – the basketball court in the Alameda High gym, that is – this Friday, May 7. And you can catch the match-up at 7 p.m. for just $5 for adults, $3 for students, payable at the door.

KNBR radio personality Tom Tolbert will serve as celebrity announcer for the game.

Police Chief Walt Tibbet – who will be playing Friday night – said the idea for the game came out of one of his regular youth forums. He said youths attending the forum thought a friendly basketball game would be a good way to connect with local police.

The school, of course, is at 2201 Encinal Avenue. And the money raised at the game will go to the school.
