Bigs in Blue/Badges

Building Bonds with Law Enforcement

Bigs in Blue/Badges is a one-to-one mentoring program, offered by BBBSAF local member agencies across Florida, that connects youth with police in communities, building strong, trusting, and lasting relationships. In addition to law enforcement, other mentoring partners include the military, fire and rescue, private security, and forestry service.

Through our high quality, evidence-based, one-to-one mentoring, young people who participate have a greater opportunity to grow up to be confident, competent, and caring adults. These relationships also build strong bonds between law enforcement and the families they serve.
