Chill with a Cop offers chance for children to meet officers
Some kids got the chance to "Chill with a Cop" Wednesday afternoon.
Mishawaka Police hosted the event at Central Park. They handed out free popsicles and played games with the kids.
Along with cooling off, it was a chance for kids to get to know police officers in their community.
"You know, just have fun. It's a great way to build up that community relationship, which is so important today,” said Lt. Tim Williams with Mishawaka Police.
The kids also got to check out the "M-wrap" SWAT vehicle.
The Kroger on Merrifield donated thousands of popsicles for the event.
