Seeing something like this really shows you what a community is all about.

Charity Hirst of Westbrook captured this short video of Westbrook Police Officer Jeremy Smith, taking some time to shoot some hoops with neighborhood kids using her basketball hoop.

The kids were just walking by when they decided to take a few shots as Officer Smith was driving by. He pulled over and joined in on the fun.

Protect, serve and have a little fun while doing it. Connecting with the community is what reminds us that the men and women in blue are there for us.
