INDIANAPOLIS - Indianapolis police and firefighters showcased the best of safety and prevention Thursday as they kicked off the annual Community Day with a rib cook-off downtown.
Last year, the Indianapolis Fire Department walked away with bragging rights in the cook-off. This year, IMPD was hoping to take the title – although it ultimately remained with IFD. As winners, a $500 donation was made in their name to a charity of their choosing.
Aside from the bragging rights, police said they hope the event helps them win over the streets and communities in Indianapolis.
"We work really closely with our businesses downtown, with our task force meetings and our community walks, but this just adds another dynamic to it where we're able to just maybe chit chat with them a little bit about what's going on with their businesses," said IMPD Downtown District Commander Karen Arnett.
The event is hosted each year by IMPD's Downtown District.
