Dozens of Baltimore City Police officers and members of the Baltimore community played in the third annual "Unity Bowl" Saturday at Frederick Douglass High School.  

The department sees the game as an opportunity for community members to have positive experiences with officers conversely residents hope the experience would also change how some officers look at people in the community. 

Although the guys from the community won the game today, we all won just because this event took place, said Baltimore police officials.
