The Sawyer County Sheriff’s Office will host its second annual Cops & Bobbers fishing event from 9 to 11:30 a.m. Saturday, Aug. 17, for kids ages 6 to 14 at The Landing Resort & R.V. Park, 8255 Highway CC on the Chippewa Flowage.

Registration is at 8 a.m., with a limit of 25 entrants. There is no fee for the event and lunch will be served at noon.

Cops and Bobbers is part of the Cops and Kids Foundation formed in 2010 by Bob Kraemer, a retired Pewaukee police officer. The mission of the foundation is to break down the barriers between law enforcement and the community, with a focus on the youth. Sawyer County is the northernmost county in the state that participates in the event.

For more information or to volunteer, contact Paula at pbush@sawyersheriff.org or leave a message for Deputy Tim Engel with the receptionist at (715) 634-9120.
