By PoliceOne Staff GARFIELD, NJ — Officers in a New Jersey city brought some joy to their community last Thursday through the game of basketball. The department teamed up with viral police hooper and founder of the Basketball Cops Foundation, Officer Bobby White, to help out a group of kids who were playing basketball using a hoop that didn’t have a backboard. Garfield Police Sgt. Jeff Stewart first noticed the issue and reached out to White on Instagram. Within minutes, White asked for an address to send a new Spalding regulation hoop set. Officers from the police department set up the hoop and delivered the surprise to the kids. The kids and officers played a five on five pick up game with the new set.
