Brooklyn Park Police are using candy bars to make connections in the community this summer. They were a gift from the local Walmart store.
“When they called us and said we have 6,500 candy bars, we said we can definitely give them away,” said Community Engagement Officer, Matt Rabe. “We really don’t know how yet. But yeah, absolutely. So we went and picked them up.”
That led to an idea about how to go behind the badge and make connections outside enforcing the law.
