Lately we've heard how law enforcement is working to bridge to gap between police and the communities in which they serve.

This weekend the focus was on connecting police officers from different departments across the region.

Lake Erie Top Shot held a friendly shooting competition at the Gem City Gun Club

The shooting competition was an event that was held in the past and organizers wanted to bring it back.

Police officers that hit their target best walk away with some prizes, and the best reward.. bragging rights.

More than 40 police officers from around 16 different departments participated.
