DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) – A Dayton neighborhood is more colorful thanks to Dayton police officers.
Off duty officers built barriers at a community park Friday. The barriers separate children playing from nearby pit bull dogs.
The neighborhood association received complaints about the dogs barking, so the barriers should do the trick.
Children painted the boards that police erected at the park off Clover and Quitman streets.
Officers want to give the kids a nice place to play.
“They take a lot of pride in what goes on in the east community and we strive to have a good partnership with the neighborhood association, so they do come in on their own time to do neighborhood clean ups, alley clean ups, stuff like that, just so we are all working together for the same thing,” said Lt. Andrew Booher, Dayton Police Department.
Lt. Booher says a park clean up and rededication will happen soon.
