Utah schools will receive more than $14,000 in grants from the Sears-Roebuck Foundation to be used for the Officer Friendly Program.

The money, part of a nationwide $3.5 million grant, will be used to support the educational efforts of the program, which is aimed at kindergarten through third-grade students.The students are visited by a locally designated Officers Friendly, who try to build closer relationships between children and the local police and sheriff departments.
