"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.
