ANOTHER SUCCESFULL YEAR AT THE COPS N' BOBBERS EVENT
Children ages 6 to 12 years old are invited to spend a morning with a police officer at the Cops N' Bobbers Fishing event. The goal is for the kids to have a fun and positive time with police officers.
In Illinois children under the age of 16 do not require a fishing license so it is a free activity for the child. The children attending the event are provided a breakfast snack and lunch. The children go home with their own fishing pole and tackle box as well as a goody bag. The kids receive a t-shirt commemorating the event.
In addition to fishing, the kids are treated to demonstrations by the IL Fire Marshalls Office K-9 Unit, the IL SOS Police Bomb (HDU) unit, the IL ISP K-9 unit, and the IL DNR Fisheries department.
This event is sponsored by the Illinois Law Enforcement Education Fund (ILEEF), the IL SOS Police FOP Lodge #95 and the IL Secretary of State Department of Police. (Multiple law enforcement agencies assist with Officers volunteering at the event).
This years event was held on July 11th and it was outstanding!!!!!! Due to the interest in this event, children will need to be pre-registered for Cops N' Bobbers for 2018 which will be held in Girard. The date will be posted on our page once determined.
