email Posted about 12 hours ago Holyoke, Mass. (WGGB) — Some members of the Holyoke Police Department took time this evening to work with kids at the Boys and Girls Club. Together they played video games, which police say helps with communication. It's based on a program used by the Marines to help team building through video games. Lt. Matthew Moriarty told ABC40 News, "We try to use this as a team building exercise not just for the P.D. or the Boys and Girls Club, but also for the kids. They get the idea you can't win on your own, there's a team waiting for you." Police also say working with the kids teaches them to trust and respect police and instills a sense of self worth in the students.
