ELIZABETH CITY, N.C. - Local law enforcement officers are finding "cool" ways to connect with the community.
Deputies with the Pasquotank County Sheriff's Office faced off against dozens of kids Friday in a water gun fight at a park in Elizabeth City.
The sheriff's office says it was the perfect day for everyone to come together and have a little fun - all while building relationships with the community.
"To promote non-violence, to promote community relations with our community and our young folks. So, we thought with a hot day what would be better than to come together and shoot water guns at each other and have a good water gun fight?" said Sgt. Anthony Alexander with the PCSO.
Afterwards, deputies also invited the kids to participate in a friendly kickball game.
