(ST. JOSEPH, Mo.) Police and youth partnered for a Big Brothers, Big Sisters event Saturday with the goal of building stronger communities.

The St. Joseph chapter hosted it's annual event, Bigs in Blue. It's a nationwide BBBS program that connects kids and teens with police in a one-on-one mentoring event.

The BBBS website said the initiative works to help children, families and law enforcement build relationships and a stronger community. The St. Joseph event was hosted at Camp Marvin Hillyard.

Children and police officers played kickball, scavenger hunts, and participated in group activities. BBBS Program Director, Tiffany Miller, said it's something everyone looks forward to.

"Our community, has really just taken a hold of the Bigs in Blue and definitely supported it," Miller said.

This is the BBBS St. Joe's second run of the event, after success last year.

"It went really great," she said. "We are really excited to have them back this year."
