Botetourt County police officers now have some much needed back up.

David Dillow is a deputy for the Botetourt County Sheriff's office and he's showing off the camera in his patrol car.

Deputies also wear microphones... so when an officer enters a building or is out of the camera's eye his conversations are still recorded.

[IN Q=It's a mircale]

((RUSS HARBUGH/FATHER: IT'S A MIRACLE. IT'S A MIRACLE.))
[Runs= 02]
[OUT Q=It's a miracle]


A miracle thanks to the Kids Special Situations Program or KISS as it's commonly known.
It's a program that helps kids with mental and physical disabilities.
[SOT 20:31:29]
[IN Q=We've had children]

((KIM SIMMS/PHYSICAL THERAPIST: WE'VE HAD CHILDREN HERE THAT DID NOT MAKE EYE CONTACT WITH ANYBODY WHEN THEY FIRST CAME INTO THE POOL.))
[Runs= 05]
[OUT Q=into the pool]


That's pretty significant when you consider most of these kids need assistance just to walk.
So twice a week they come here to the YWCA in Roanoke for therapy.
The pool allows these kids to move freely, and within time they sharpen their physical as well as their social skills.
[SOT 20:38:28]
[IN Q=It costs nearly 16,000]

((JUSTIN McLEOD/REPORTING: IT COSTS NEARLY 16-THOUSAND DOLLARS A YEAR TO PUT ON THIS PROGRAM. ALL OF THAT FUNDING FOR NEXT YEAR, ON THE STATE, LOCAL, AND FEDERAL LEVEL HAS BEEN CUT. THAT IS WHY THE COMING MONTHS WILL BE CRITICAL AS TO WHETHER THIS PROGRAM STAYS OR GOES.))
[Runs= 13]
[OUT Q=stays or goes]

((QUICK NAT SOUND OF KIDS IN THE POOL))
In response to the money crunch, the YWCA plans to hold several fundraisers in the coming months.
First up? A swimathon.
[SOT 20:35:05]
[IN Q=I would encourage everyone]

((PAULA JONES/EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR OF YWCA: I WOULD ENCOURAGE EVERYONE TO JUST BE PART OF THIS OPPORTUNITY AND HELP US, HELP US TO CONTINUE TO SERVE A NEED IN OUR COMMUNITY.))
[Runs= 07]
[OUT Q=in our community]


It is a need that is currently used by just eight kids.
The "Y" hopes increased participation, a slight rise in program fees, and help from the community will keep this program from going under.
[SOT 20:37:10]
[IN Q=I think you have to see]

((RUSS HARBUGH/FATHER: I THINK YOU HAVE TO SEE THESE KIDS AND THE EFFECT IT HAS ON THEM BUT IT IS MONEY WELL WORTH IT, WELL SPENT.))

An investment that will keep these kids afloat for many years to come. (SHOT AT 20:26:38)
