BROWN COUNTY, Wis. (WFRV) – The Brown County Sheriff’s Office is hosting their annual Food Truck Rally Monday evening with all proceeds going to the Police Lights of Christmas.
Local Five’s Erinn Taylor was live at the Food Truck Rally to talk with law enforcement, and find out why this event is so important for “Police Lights of Christmas.”
The event is being held at the Sheriff’s office in Bellevue from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. and there will be more than just food trucks there.
They will have live demonstrations from several units of the departments, the SWAT team will be there, the K9 unit, vehicle displays, a fire truck, photos with an officer, and much more.
Brown County Sheriff Todd Delain told Local Five how events like this allow for a real connection to be made with the community and law enforcement. Delain wants community members to see the people behind the badge and encourage officers to create a connection with the community. A connection he hopes will persist. Saying, “the big thing is because a lot of people see the uniform and they’re afraid of the uniform and we want them to know that there’s people behind those uniforms, badges, and show them all the different things we provide for the safety and security of the community and all the community things that we do.”
Police Lights of Christmas began in 2016 in an effort to help low-income or homeless people in the community during Christmas.
