Running With The Cops Instead Of From Them






Officer Brandon Shew participated in a 5K Run With Cops in Oshkosh on October 5th benefiting Special Olympics.  A few hundred citizens and over 30 Law Enforcement agencies participated in this event. Over 40 squad cars lit up the night course and runners collected flashing red and blue goodies along the way. There was also a pit stop along the way where you could grab a donut. Great job to Officer Shew for placing in the top 20 and participating in such a great cause!

Light Up Your Outdoor Activities

  The mornings are staying dark longer, as the evening light fades earlier. Everyone should be digging out as many reflectors, lights and flashing gadgets to light as much as possible on early morning and evening rides,   runs and walks.
 
Whether it’s to see or be seen, we remind all outdoor exercise enthusiasts to be safe during this time of the year, and light up from head to toe!
 
Some simple tips include: using small blinkers, reflectors or supplementary lights on your bike, or body; wear reflective clothing; and abide by the rules of the road.
 
The Sturgeon Bay Police Department wants you to be safe as you get out there and enjoy this time of the year.
