On 8/1/16 Barryton PD participated in Mecosta County’s National Night out at Big Rapids PD.  It was a time of hanging out with families and kids from the community, letting kids play with the lights and sirens and talking to them about being a cop.  This was a great experience which Officer Bielecki was part of and I highly recommend coming out next year and bringing your family.
