NOW: City and county leaders host Jackson Park neighborhood walk to build community trust

MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- City and county leaders with local police and park rangers joined neighbors for a walk today, on June 30.

They toured the Jackson Park neighborhood.

Organizers say the goal of the walk is for local elected officials to build trust with the community.

Milwaukee Alderman Mark Borkowski -- who helped coordinate the walk -- says Milwaukee police officers from the 6th District were excited to get out and meet south side residents tonight.

"They wanted to see the neighborhood, it gives them the chance to also be seen. I know people say well I don't see a squad right or I don't see a police officer. Well this is a time that they're here," said Borkowski.

The walk started at El Rey Family Market.

They then stopped at Manitoba Park and concluded at Jackson Park for the farmer's market.
