Organizers hope the event makes neighborhoods safer, more caring places to live and work.
Attendees at the Tuesday evening gathering got a chance to ask questions and socialize with the members of the Pleasant Hill Police Department. Also on hand yesterday, local fire department, members of American Medical Response (AMR), and the local Community Emergency Response Team (CERT).
Judging by the long line to get hot dogs and hamburgers hot off the grill, the community BBQ was a big draw.
A DJ kept things lively with upbeat music while kids delighted in the bouncy house and inflatable slide. And of course the face painting booth was a must-stop-at for many parents.
