ROCHESTER, N.Y. — The final Project T.I.P.S. of the season is coming on Thursday. The event seeks to build trust between law enforcement and the community in areas with a high amount of unsolved crimes.

The event, which is an acronym for trust, information, programs, and services, will happen at Jones Park on Saratoga Avenue on August 25. Camp Good Days and the Rochester Police Department are the organizers.

There will be a free cook-out, music, and family fun that starts at 3:30 p.m. in the park. You can read more here.
