In September, Blooming Meadows residents and Bloomington Police came together for good food, yard games, prizes and a fun time. The department’s Racial Equity Action Team (REAT) hosted a community cookout at Blooming Meadows, on 86th Street East, to give residents a chance to mingle with neighbors, meet new people and connect with BPD staff and officers right in their own backyard.

“I liked seeing the positive interactions between the community and BPD,” officer and BPD REAT member Desmond Daniels said. “Questions were asked both ways and the conversations were flowing. Most of all I enjoyed seeing the kids have a great time.”

This was BPD’s first event like this. The department plans to host similar events at different apartment buildings throughout the city.
