Hamilton County's Reds suite to host kids and cops

CINCINNATI (AP) - The ballpark suite for Hamilton County taxpayers will be used again this summer for Cincinnati Reds games for a noncontroversial cause - letting children see games with police officers.

The Cincinnati Enquirer (http://cin.ci/1hCO2nk ) reports an agreement has been reached for the Hamilton County sheriff's office to use the Great American Ball Park suite for 20 games this season. Concessions will be donated by the Reds food service provider Delaware North.

The county hadn't used its suite for three seasons after examples surfaced that local leaders were using it as a perk, and that suites were being stocked with thousands of dollars' worth of treats such as Montgomery Inn barbecue.

As part of taxpayer funding, the county has the use of a suite in both the baseball and football stadiums.
