LEXINGTON, Ky. (WTVQ) – The Lexington Police Department joined the community Saturday afternoon at Gainesway Park for “Cops and Bobbers”.
Kids from around the community came with their families to learn how to fish and build relationships between the officers and community members.
Officers say they are excited to bond with the community and deepen the relationships so community members feel comfortable coming directly to police for anything they need.
“This is definitely just a way for us to get to know our community better and then hopefully facilitate those interactions in the future,” says Officer Chris Murner.
The department says it would like to see this event and others like it continue in the future to keep the police and community connection strong.
