The first Policeman’s Ball since 1947 took place May 1 at Cambridge Golf Club, and more than 275 officers, their spouses, and friends of the Evansville Police Department attended. The event also honored three businessmen who support local police officers: Bob Jones, Alan Newman, and Jeff Whiteside. Guests enjoyed a silent auction, dinner, entertainment by the talented North High School Jazz Combo, an awards presentation, and dancing to the music of Two Tone Express. Police Sgt. Diana Walters chaired the event, and organizers say the black-tie ball will be an annual event. Pictured: Jeff and Becky Whiteside.
