Bigs in Blue is a one-to-one mentoring program that connects youth with police in Dane County, building strong, trusting, lasting relationships. These relationships can help children develop into confident adults and help build stronger bonds between law enforcement and the families they serve. Across the country, communities have been seeking answers on how to build stronger and healthier bonds between law enforcement and the families they serve and protect.
