Police spend time with community youth
On Aug. 25, the Duluth Police Department visited the Central Hillside neighborhood as part of the two-day event, Kids, Cops and Cars. Previously in the week, they visited Memorial Park in West Duluth. This was the fourth annual event made possible by donations from local businesses. The day included food, games, K9s, horses, a grounded helicopter and other police vehicles. The public was encouraged to meet local law enforcement members in a fun environment. "We have a lot of officers coming through here today," said Ron Tinsley of the Duluth Police Department. "It's a great opportunity for us to meet with the community and get to know them."
