Kids, meet the cops

Here’s a chance for kids to get an up close look at police officers and squad cars.

From noon to 3:30 p.m. today Duluth police officers will be at Portland Square, the corner of 10th Avenue East and Fourth Street, to meet children and their families. They promise plenty of fun, games and a barbecue.

It’s a neighborhood Cops, Kids and Cars event sponsored by the police department.
