The Eden Prairie Police Department blog provides an opportunity for the public to learn more about the people who work there — their stories, their lives, their work in Eden Prairie and their thoughts on topics from driving to dogs.
Cops & Bobbers
Last Thursday, four EPPD officers teamed up with a non-profit organization called Let’s Go Fishing! to take 19 Eden Prairie kids fishing on Riley Lake. In the two hours they were on the water, the two boats hauled in (and released) 196 fish!
The event was a great opportunity for our officers to connect with kids on a beautiful summer night. The EPPD would like to thank the Eden Prairie Crime Prevention Fund for their generous donation of fishing poles and dinner for the kids.
We always appreciate the opportunity to partner with community organizations like Let’s Go Fishing! and hope to do it again next summer!
