RENO, Nev. (AP) — Rounding up bad guys isn't the only priority of Reno police officers.

During the month of March, officers and staff of the Reno Police Department collected nearly 500 children's books as part of the Washoe County School District's community book drive.

The books were picked up Wednesday and will be distributed to local schools.

Officials say the books will be given to students and used by volunteer tutors to help children who do not read at their average grade level improve their reading and literacy skills.

Schools with limited book purchasing funds will be given priority to receive the donations.
