BRAINERD — The Crow Wing County Sheriff’s Office will be hosting the 2nd Annual Skate with a Cop event 1:30-3:30 p.m. Sunday, March 5, at the Essentia Health Sports Center in Brainerd.

“Last year, one of our deputies had the idea of the skate with cop event,” said Lt. Craig Katzenberger, Crow Wing County Sheriff’s Office. “We had well over 100 people show up (last year), so we thought we would continue it and do it again.”

Attendees will have an opportunity to skate with local law enforcement officers from across Crow Wing County. McGruff the Crime Dog will also make an appearance.

Cub Foods will be providing snacks and refreshments. Skate rental will not be available at the arena.

The event is free with Essentia Health Sports Center for donating ice time and Brainerd/Baxter Cub Foods for donating cookies and refreshments.
