Minneapolis police officers were this year's winners in the Battle of the Badges barbeque cook-off Saturday.
     
Both the police and fire departments cooked up their best ribs for a large judging panel including the police and fire chief, as well as community members.

Firefighters brought some of their life safety equipment to demonstrate for kids.

The police canine unit, Bomb squad, and mounted patrol showed up too.

The event took place from 12 p.m. to 4 p.m. at North Commons Park on James Avenue North.
