On Oct 6th, The SPD and the mystic housing activity center collaborated to start the community unity basketball game. Over 75 members of the community came out to watch and cheer on the teams.
The SPD hopes this event can continue in the future so that youth can feel they can start open and honest conversations with police in their community.
The basketball game included 16 police officers and over 30 youths. Special thanks to the DJ for music, Pini’s Pizzeria for providing the food and VilleSide Customs Co. for creating the uniforms and finally a thank you to Stevenson Aman for coaching.
