Miami police department unveiled an ice cream truck.
The truck will be used at community events and random appearances in neighborhoods, where children will be able to get ice cream for free
“This for us has been a labor of love,” said Miami Police Chief Jorge Colina. “It’s taken quite some time to bring everybody together that we needed to unveil this ice cream truck...This is really all about community.”
The Miami Police Community Ice Cream Truck came with the help of Eventstar Structures Corp., Greater Miami/Miami-Beach Police Foundation, the city and the Miami Police Athletic League.
The colorful van, has a freezer, a picture of children eating ice cream and the Miami police logo.
“It is an opportunity for us to have a law enforcement engagement with our community, primarily the kids, that is not traditional,” Colina said. “Where it’s all about positive vibes — an ice breaker for us to be able to communicate with the kids in our neighborhoods.”
