N. COVENTRY TWP., Pa. - The weather has certainly been hot these last few days. Sometimes that calls for a good scoop of ice cream.
That's what was happening Tuesday night at the Coventry Ice Cream Parlor in North Coventry Township, Chester County, but with a twist.
North Coventry Township police hosted an event there called "Cops and Cones."
It started at 6 p.m. and ran for two hours at the ice cream parlor.
The event gave police officers a chance to meet some community members, with hopes to improve the relationship between the two.
The police provided the ice cream and gave honorary badges to the kids.
They also had some K-9 demonstrations. It was North Coventry's new K-9 officer, Kendra's first demonstration!
Police even showed the kids SWAT gear and the SWAT truck.
Around 100 to 150 people stopped by the event.
