CLEVELAND, Ohio —¬†Cleveland police officers were out in force Thanksgiving morning.

But no arrests were made — just a few deliveries.

More than a dozen officers from the second district went house to house bringing holiday meals to shut-ins and others in their community.

Turkey and all the fixings were delivered to more than 50 families around the second district.

Officers say this is a way to help bridge the disconnect that occurs sometimes between police and city residents.

City officers volunteer thousands of hours each year to help out their communities and not just with delivering meals.

Officers work as coaches, mentors and volunteers in organizations all over the city.
