WICHITA, Kan. (KSN) – A video showing a Wichita police officer dancing with a group of Black Lives Matter activists at a community cookout has become a viral hit.

Now, Wichita Police Chief Gordon Ramsay has received an invitation to visit the White House to discuss community relations, according to a Wichita Police Department spokesperson.

KSN has been told, however, that Chief Ramsay cannot attend because he is already committed to be at a family wedding.

The First Steps Community Cookout at McAdams Park took place after Chief Ramsey met with representatives of a planned protest for the same night.

Chief Ramsay said he hopes to continue building the relationship between the community and police and he plans to have four more events in the next month.
