MENASHA (WLUK) -- People came together with the police in Menasha Sunday as a community awareness concert filled Jefferson Park with music.

As a crowd gathered to enjoy the music, an important message was the main tune.

"This community concert is to get individuals together, the community together, in response to the police shootings across the nation," said Tim Burton Junior, one of the organizers and a member of Studio One Productions.

"Here in East Wisconsin we're not immune to the things that go on across our nation," added Tim Burton Senior, also a member of Studio One Productions.

Studio One Productions created this event with speakers and musical acts to help forge a closer relationship between the people and the police.

"Getting the businesses together, getting the community together and walking hand in hand with the police and just feel comfortable," explained Tim Burton Senior.

Area first responders talked with visitors and showed off their vehicles and equipment.

There were also displays to introduce people to local services for issues like domestic violence, foster care and drug abuse.

"If someone's not familiar with where to go they'll let you know exactly where to come and get some help," said Trice Burton, another organizer.

The most important resource was the officers themselves. They took the time to get to know the people.

"It's not us versus them. It's a team effort," Tim Burton Junior told us.

The officers told FOX 11 a strong relationship between law enforcement and the community is vital. They believe when there's mutual trust, potentially tense situations are handled better.

"It's the foundation of what, of what we're here to do. We have a job to do, but at the same time, our job revolves around serving the community," said Deputy Ryan Hathaway of the Winnebago County Sheriff's Department.

But organizers explained it's a two way street.

"The community has to give their initial outreach. They have to be willing to work with the police," said Tim Burton Junior.
