Bellevue police skate with children during 'Tweet Meet' event
BELLEVUE, Neb. —
Tonight police officers traded in their boots for skates, all for a good cause.
The Bellevue Police Department hosted a "Tweet Meet" at Skate City in Bellevue.
The event allowed members of the police department to interact with children and members of the community.
Admission was free for everyone.
The police department says this event helps strengthen the community.
"Anytime they have a problem, they can come to us, and by coming out and participating in an event that they enjoy, it shows that we're human too and we like to do fun things," said Roger Cox of the Bellevue Police Department. "Hopefully, it makes that connection stronger."
At the end of March, the Bellevue police will host their junior officer camp for ages 4 to 9.
That event teaches children more about what the police department does every day.
