(KWES) - Busting for Badges is happening at the end of April but on Saturday, April 7, it was all about Burritos for Badges.

Midland and Odessa communities got to see and meet the officers sworn to protect and serve them.

While enjoying food from Rosas Cafe & Tortilla Factory, photos of the officers were given to kids and they even got to check out some of the gear and equipment police use every day.

"We're out here to connect with the community, talk with people. We're always here to listen to people's problems and the issues going on. We try to be active and always do events like this, just to see 'hey, what's happening in our neighborhood we don't know about,'" said Officer Daniel Steif, Midland Police Department.

Raffle tickets were also sold with the chance to win cool prizes.
