Police meet and greet at Weston Park

Elkhart police officers held a community event Thursday afternoon at Weston Park to hear from members of the public.

ELKHART — There was a heavy police presence in Weston Park on Thursday between 5 and 6 p.m.

The Elkhart Police Department officers were there not to stop criminals but to hear from members of the community who enthusiastically showed up on a sunny and pleasant fall afternoon. The children who came may have been the most excited, as the officers deployed their greatest weapon in the fight to win young hearts: candy.
