TULSA, Okla. (AP) - Tulsa police officers are helping to distribute refurbished computers to at-risk kids this week.
Officers in Tulsa and nine other local law enforcement and tribal agencies are scheduled to deliver about 80 computers to needy children in the metro area on Thursday.
It's the 11th year for the program that partners local law enforcement agencies and the founder of PC Power, a company started by a retired Tulsa officer who began building computers for needy children as a Christmas project in 2003.
That pilot project evolved into a year-round operation that's provided computers for more than 1,000 families.
Officers say this year's donated computers will be used by about 200 children.
