Annual Dust Bowl Brings Community

 
A long-time Evansville tradition continued Tuesday, the annual Dust Bowl basketball tournament.
 
There was even a game that was cops versus kids, all for the betterment of the community. 
 
The annual basketball tournament is held by the organization Young and Established and the Evansville Police Department.
 
There are 14 teams that go head to head multiple times over the course of six days at the C.K Newsome Center.
 
There were food vendors, music and many activities for those watching the game.
 
Evansville Police Department took some time to shoot hoops with the kids saying it is important for them to see police in a positive light.
 
"It is a good chance for me to actually interact in the community" said EPD officer Ray Smith" not in only just a policing capacity even though i am working security and making sure everything goes well here. But i get to catch up with the kids laugh and joke with them and they get to see a different side of law enforcement."
 
The tournament kicked off on Monday and the championship game will be held on Saturday.
