Melendez said it feels great to have an uplifting event associated with the police force.

“So many times we are called when something negative has happened; either somebody has been robbed or hurt, and every time we go out there it's something bad, never good,” he said.

“But when we get to go out with the community like this, it helps officers as much as community. We are part of the community, and we're here to help.”
