Greencastle PD hosting Annual ‘Fish with a Cop’ event this September

8 August 2023- Greencastle PD and other local law enforcement invite kids and their families to participate in their Annual “Fish with a Cop” event at the Greencastle Sportsman’s Association next month. Saturday, September 16th marks the department’s sixth annual event and will run from 9:30am to 2:30pm with a rain date of September 17th.

GPD say they’re looking to introduce youth to the local police officers and at the same time create lifelong memories for them. Through the event, Greencastle PD hopes that they will then see the police in a different light and create a lasting positive relation amongst the community.

Participants will learn about skills, equipment, techniques, and safety of freshwater fishing in Pennsylvania. At the same time, participants will be mentored by a local law enforcement officer.

Children between the ages of 7-17 are invited to participate in this event. If you know any child that would like to spend the day fishing with a police officer, please contact Officer Jim Bradley at 717-597-9506 ext. 244 or send an email to prior to September 1st. Registration is limited to the first 75 applicants.
