LPD hosts Dream Court ribbon cutting

LUBBOCK, Texas -

The Lubbock Police Department hosted a ribbon cutting for the city's first Dream Court at Mae Simmons Park. 

The department teamed up with Nancy Lieberman Charities and the World Ventures Foundation on this project. 

The state of the art space will help build relationships between officers and the community. 

"Whether you're white or black or Asian or Latino, you come on a court and when there's five or four or three of you, it's called a team," said Nancy Lieberman, dream court sponsor. "They don't care what you look like, they just care, can you play? can you compete? so that changes the equation in life."

Other court donors include Campisi's Italian Restaurant, 4ORE, Reagor Dykes Auto Group and First United Bank.
