The Newark Police Department held its second-annual P.A.L. Party at Dickey Park on Saturday evening. Intended to foster better relationships with the community, the event was organized by the newly formed Newark chapter of the Police Athletic League. Police officers grilled up hot dogs and hamburgers, while others gave demonstrations. Meanwhile, kids could play in a mobile video game trailer, cool off on an inflatable water slide or meet police horses from the New Castle County Police Mounted Unit. Local church New Heart Ministries handed out backpacks and school supplies.
