SHEFFIELD, AL (WAFF) -

The Sheffield Police Department and the Housing Authority's ACE program are spreading the message that kids have alternative choices.

Dozens of at-risk kids from the city are spending the week with law enforcement officials. Officers are helping to mentor and motivate the children for future success.

Thursday, the kids were treated to a field day, with demonstrations from area fire and police departments. Some even got to sit on top of a police motorcycle.

"We spend time with them as we try to help them make positive choices in life, in reference to gangs, drugs and also bullying," explained Henry Green with the police department.

Other highlights of the week-long project included trips to Point Mallard, the U.S. Space & Rocket Center, and even a few frames of bowling.
