Wichita Police Gather at BBQ With Community

KSAL StaffJuly 18, 2016

What was originally planned as a protest march turned into a barbecue in which Wichita police and a diverse group of residents broke bread together.

The Wichita Eagle reports that organizers of the protest met with Police Chief Gordon Ramsay for several hours, ending with an agreement for the barbecue, which took place Sunday at McAdams Park. Several Wichita police officers took part.

The goal was to open lines of communication and build trust between police and the communities they serve. The crowd at the barbecue included people who were white, black and Hispanic.
