WICHITA, Kan. (KSNW) – A rainy afternoon didn’t stop dozens from heading out to Edgemoor Park for the Wichita Police Unity Cookout on Saturday.
Police hoped for a better turnout, but all things considered, it was a success.
The theme for the cookout was transparency and unity. The event is meant to bring together community members and officers.
“With community members coming and getting to know the officers, I think it’s just important. Something that we want to do, we want to build that foundation, that relationship of trust and communication with the community,” explained officer Ryan Hunt.
About a dozen community police officers stopped by the cookout Saturday.
