Thursday, July 16th kicked off our “Cool Off with the Cops” events. Sponsored by the Auburn Hills Community Foundation, Police Officers will be visiting various neighborhoods in July and August to hand out ice cream to kids. Nothing says “FUN” like an ice cream truck with a police escort, and giving our police officers a unique opportunity to be in our neighborhoods sharing one of summer’s favorite treats. And the best part is that the ice cream is compliments of the community foundation.
I got a chance to spend a few minutes today with Officers Smith, Miller and Sears as they interacted with nearly two hundred kids that participated throughout the Bloomfield Orchards neighborhood. I have long been proud of the AHPD and the relationship it has with our community. This is one more shining example of the extraordinary things they do to connect with our citizens and to let our community know just how much we care about them.
Look for more of these events as they make their way into a number of neighborhoods throughout the city in the weeks to come. Rain or shine, we’ll be there!
