Lockland, Ohio Officers pay it forward to local youths

February 5, 2016 Lockland, Ohio Local Officers noticed that some local kids were playing basketball on a court but that the hoop was in bad shape and there was no backboard. If the shot missed the kids would have to chase the ball.Officers decided that the kids deserved better than that and went to a local Walmart and bought a mobile basketball hoop and brought it back to their station house where they set it up in between service calls to the public.

Officers Ohl, Jones, and Moyers then loaded product onto Officer Jones’ truck with their Sgt’s following them and placed it on the basketball court for the kids to find Saturday morning to play with.

“The hoop was put next to the old one, a quick picture was taken by myself because I felt it should be documented due to the sheer gratitude shown by my guys. None of the kids were outside so they will definitely have a good surprise come morning.” Sgt. Bundren told nbc4i.
