COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo.– Helping to build positive interactions between officers and the community is the goal of PLAY COS, and this weekend officers at the Colorado Springs Police Department hope you can help out, to. FOX21’s Sarah Ferguson joined Sgt. Jason Newton and Officer Adam Menter at CSPD’s downtown headquarters for all the details on the Inaugural “Balltoberfest,” and found out what the PLAY COS program means to them.
If you’d like to take part in “Balltoberfest,” a sports ball donation drive to benefit PLAY COS, it’s all happening Saturday, October 16, 2021 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Colorado Springs’ Scheels.
