The Athens and Ohio University Police Departments teamed up Tuesday evening to hold a free community barbeque.

The event was meant to foster the relationship between officers and community members. DARE vehicles, police horses and police canines were all on display for people to view in a more casual light than ever before.

Both APD and OUPD say this event was only one of many initiatives they are working on in order to build a strong relationship between themselves and those they protect and serve.
