Kids n' Kops trading cards promoting healthy messages for youths
BANGOR/ORONO The Bangor and University of Maine police departments have launched a new Kids n' Kops trading card program intended to raise awareness about bullying and substance abuse prevention among elementary and middle school youngsters.
The series of 14 trading cards features male and female UMaine student-athletes who play Division I sports at the state's flagship university. Members of the Bangor and UMaine police departments will distribute the cards at community events, including university athletic games at the Cross Insurance Center in Bangor and on campus.
Youngsters can collect five cards and bring them to one of the two police departments for a free Kids n' Kops T-shirt and two tickets to a UMaine basketball game.

Women in law enforcement

In a field predominated by men, women in law enforcement still tend to stand out. It's a field defined by dangers and takes a toll on its ranks regardless of gender. We took the time to sit down with several women from different departments in the area about what the job involves, advice they have for women looking to get into the field and the very real challenges they face.

And though the percentage is small, there are some strong examples of women in the ranks in every aspect of law enforcement from municipal to county, state and corrections. We chatted with just a small percent of the small percent (in alphabetical order).
