Building neighborhood ties

Summer was full of events that brought police and the community together. In August, police hosted Safe Summer Nights where they grilled burgers and got to know people. More than 1,300 attendees took an inside look at police and fire equipment, met and played with K9 officers, played bags and gaga ball and swam at the Bloomington Family Aquatic Center. Thousands of residents also got together with Police in their neighborhoods to celebrate Bloomington’s 34th annual National Night Out on August 2 with more than 350 parties.
