CANARSIE -

A group of Canarsie volunteers spent Saturday washing police cars as a thank you to NYPD officers.

The volunteers wanted to show respect after multiple officers in the city were doused by buckets of water earlier this week.

One volunteer says he hopes activities like this will help to strengthen the relationship between the community and the officers.

Commanding Officer Terrell Anderson of the 69th Precinct says he doesn't believe the water attacks reflect the community as a whole.
