Officers with the South Bend (IN) Police Department partnered with the South Bend Cubs—the Class-A minor league affiliate of the Chicago Cubs—for a Halloween event for kids in the area to have a safe place to Trick-or-Treat on Monday night.
According to CBS News, thousands of kids and parents packed the ballpark where the team plays, with law enforcement officers and members of the community standing side-by-side handing out candy to children.
Last year, the event—named "Cops and Goblins"—attracted more than 6,000 kids and parents to Four Winds Field.
"Community policing is a priority for the South Bend Police Department and this annual trick or treat event is the one officers look forward to the most," South Bend Police Chief Scott Ruszkowski said. "This fun and safe event for families is yet another opportunity for the community and officers to come together and continue to build positive relationships that benefit the city as a whole."
