ABOUT DO THE RIGHT THING

In 1994, the St. Louis Metropolitan Police Department and the St. Louis County Police Department partnered with  KMOV-TV, Suburban Journals, and The Cooperating School Districts of Greater St. Louis, Inc., to participate in the “Do The Right Thing” program. Do The Right Thing provides recognition to children who have been nominated by teachers, parents, and neighbors based on their good behavior, heroic acts, and service to the greater St. Louis area community.  

 

Since its inception, more than 25,000 area school children have been nominated for Do The Right Thing Awards. Though only 10 are selected each month to attend the ceremonies, other nominees are honored at their schools with special ceremonies and prizes. The Department’s continued support of this program assists area students by encouraging them to “Do The Right Thing” and become outstanding St. Louis citizens.

Community partners have stepped up throughout the years joining St. Louis City and County Police Departments making a difference.  Police partnerships expanded to also include the Southern Illinois Police Chief's Association and the St. Louis Area Police Chief's Association.  With the support of the Police Chiefs around the Greater St. Louis Area, the children in our community have been supported by the officers and Chiefs where they live and go to school.  

Corporate sponsors in our community, with the area police agencies, are how Do The Right Thing is funded and able to support our efforts to recognize every single child that is nominated.  Supporting our sponsors helps support the children in our community.
