The Gulfport Police Department kicks off its summer youth initiative program today with a beach volleyball game.
The community was invited out to show off their volleyball skills at Jones Park. This program is a part of the Gulfport Blue Crew, a group of officers who make it their mission to get out and get to know the community.
Throughout the summer, the crew hosts cookouts, visits summer camps, and holds outdoor sporting events open to the public.
Shelva Border played against the Blue Crew today and she says it’s a great way to meet her local law enforcement. “They get out and protect us and we need to get out and show our support to them because they put their life on the line every day for us so we might as well get out and have some fun with them.”
The Blue Crew’s next event will be a summer movie night Saturday, June 15th from 6 to 9 p.m.
