Law enforcement agencies in Kitsap County are holding an event this Sunday to reach out to minority groups in the community.
Kitsap County Sheriff Gary Simpson and Bremerton Police Chief Steve Strachan are joining together with local city and county church leadership to host a “community outreach unity picnic” with the theme, “Let’s Be True to the Black and Blue,” according to a press release.
“This endeavor is part of a coalition action group to bridge gaps and miscommunications between law enforcement and the diverse communities whom we all serve,” the release states. “Whether private citizen, active serving law enforcement or retired, volunteer or full-time … everyone is welcome to join in as our guests and be part of this community venture!”
The picnic is open to the public and takes place from 3-5 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 21 at Evergreen Rotary Park, 1500 Park Avenue in Bremerton.
