2nd Annual Cops-n-Kids Fishing Tournament

2nd Annual Cops-n-Kids Fishing TournamentBrooklyn Park police officers took off their uniforms, threw on a t-shirt and shorts and took 100 of the City’s neediest kids fishing at Champlin Mill Pond (Doris A. Kemp Park) in Champlin last month.

It was all part of a community outreach effort to show children between the ages of 7 and 12 that police officers not only protect and serve, but love to fish.

Each child was assigned to an officer who taught them the basics of fishing. At the end of the event, an awards ceremony was held where kids were awarded prizes for the biggest fish.

As part of the event, each child received a rod, reel and tackle box to take home, courtesy of Target. Cabela’s and Dairy Queen also donated supplies and food for the event.

The event was the brainstorm of Lieutenant Mark Bruley, who is the police department’s SWAT commander and an avid, award winning
fisherman.
