SCMPD and LOOP host Cinco de Mayo festivities

Posted: Updated:
SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -

Festivities for Cinco de Mayo kicked off a little early on Saturday.

Community outreach organizations joined the Savannah Chatham Police Department's Latino Officer Outreach Program (LOOP) to host the event. Attendees enjoyed music, dancing and games, as well as a presentation from SCMPD's K-9, Mounted Patrol, and Motorcycle units.

LOOP is a specialized unit of officers who volunteer their services to the hispanic population and was created because of the growing need for Spanish-speaking officers to translate during crime investigations.
