Statesboro officers donate another basketball hoop through grant

STATESBORO, GA (WTOC) -

You may remember we showed you two police officers bringing a basketball hoop to one Statesboro neighborhood.

They're at it again.

Officers Shane Jenkins and J.D. Lewis got another goal and ball, this time through a grant from the Basketball Cop Foundation.

Like the first good deed, this one is also to give the kids something constructive to do.

The officers say it's about building relationships with the people they serve and protect.

“We just want them to know we care and that we're not the bad guys. So hopefully, if something happens, they come to us,” said Jenkins.

They've already had donors contact them to buy more goals in spots where the officers see a need.
