BROOKLYN - Police officers in Bedford-Stuyvesant handed out free books Wednesday to give back to their community.

Officers from the New York City Housing Bureau's Public Service Area 3 spent the afternoon with kids at the Marcy Houses and passed out free books.

The books were donated by police officers from the district as a way to connect with kids and their parents.

The event is the start of a new program called the Neighborhood Coordination Officers, an initiative to continue to build strong connections with neighborhoods throughout all five New York City boroughs.
