Cops and Bobbers is back
Free day of fishing with local officers
For the City Times
The Portage County Deputy Sheriffs Association, The Stevens Point Police Officer’s Association, Portage County Law Enforcement Agencies, and the Stevens Point Elks Lodge No. 641 will host the 12th annual “Cops and Bobbers” program on June 5.
The event offers children and their parents the opportunity to enjoy a free day of fishing with local law enforcement officers, creating a positive experience with officers while they learn a recreational pastime they can enjoy the rest of their lives.
Portage County Deputy Eric Koepsell and Plover Police Officer Seth Pionke started Cops and Bobbers in 2008, with the hopes that they could share their passion for fishing with children.
This year’s event will be held on June 5, at Bukolt Park in Stevens Point, 9 a.m. – noon, and is open to kids ages 3-15.
