The Pizza and Police event featured love and pies for everyone who attended recently at Caprigio's Pizza.
Visitors received child identification kits, plastic badges, coloring books, crayons and got to climb in the patrol car and turn on the lights and sirens.
The event provided a chance for officers to meet one-on-one with the public with whom they interact. But, it also served as a fundraiser for Soles 4 Souls.
The community relations unit set a goal to collect 100 pairs of shoes for donation to Soles 4 Souls. They hit 103 pairs, and the donations continued after the event.
“Our Clarksville community shined as usual,” said Jim Knoll, Clarksville police public information officer. “They made the Soles 4 Souls’ give shoes, give love motto a reality.
“We appreciate Caprigio's Pizza for hosting and discounting their food for the event. Also, Middle Tennessee Pepsi was kind enough to donate 20 cases of Pepsi for our visitors to quench their thirst.
“We appreciate the generous citizens of the Clarksville and continue to be thankful for the support law enforcement receives from the community.”
