American Legion thanks South Bend Police Department with cookout

The American Legion post 357 held a cookout Monday in honor of the South Bend Police Department.

A group gathered at the police station where they spent the day cooking for officers in between their shifts.

"As you see, we are getting in the middle of the first batch being done. And we are going to have it for all three shifts. We will be here for the afternoon shift when they come in at 2. Then we are going to cook fresh chicken for the midnight shift when they show up at 10 o'clock." said Terry Santa, SBPD Patrolman. 

The cookout was made possible by donations from several companies across the Michiana area.
