South Bend police interact with community at neighborhood block party

South Bend, Ind. Officers at the South Bend Police Department usually performs roll call in the station. But on Sunday, that was not the case.

About a dozen South Bend officers met with their superior officer outside the 1700 block of College Street.

It was all to start off Sunday's neighborhood block party.

Organizers say the Northwest Neighborhood once struggled to connect with each other or even call the police in suspicious events.

But they joined together to thank police Sunday for their service and for all of the progress that both the neighborhood and police have made.

"The idea was to open up kind of what happens,” explained Neighborhood Watch Captain Jen Tindell. “Let the community see that it's not a secretive kind of thing. People can be involved. They can ask questions."

Terry McFadden will have much more on the program coming up Monday, Just Before Six.
