“Dear PoPville,

I’m a member of the Stonewall Bocce League, an all-inclusive, LGBT Bocce League. Last night was our first game, and an MPD Officer comes up (I didn’t get his name), and asks if he can toss a ball! He actually did really well, and helped our team out quite a bit that round! Kudos to this police officer for making our evening so fun, and for being an ally! Makes me proud to live in a city with a police force that not only works to keep its citizens safe, but also is committed to engaging with the community.”

    It was fun :^) At first I thought the bacci balls were Easter eggs…

    I witnessed this. When I first saw the officer approaching the group I thought maybe someone had called in a complaint. With the officer’s first throw everyone erupted into a loud cheer. Really nice to see this kind of positive police/community interaction.
