SYLVESTER, GA (WALB) - Officers in Sylvester stepped off the streets and into the kitchen Monday. Several police officers served Thanksgiving dinner for the community at the First African Baptist Church.

Officers cooked turkey, dressing and greens. This the first year the police department has held this event. And they hope it will help bridge the gap between the community and the police department.

"It's Thanksgiving and there are a lot of families who can't afford to have a real thanksgiving meal. So I got together with some of the people in the community and cooked a meal for them," said Investigator Nathaniel Newton.

"And it gives me who is new and the chief who is new in the community a chance to meet the people." The Sylvester Police department hopes to make this Thanksgiving dinner an annual event.
