NOPD officers hit the court with KIPP Central City Academy (KCCA) students this afternoon (Oct. 5) to play in a basketball game before the start of fall break. 

The students invited NOPD to play in the game to engage with police officers in a fun and interactive way. 

Coryell Pierce, an 8th grader at KCCA, said he was excited to play with officers rather than against them. 

"It was really exciting because I never really got to play with police officers. I always play against police officers because they live around our neighborhood, said Pierce.
