Badges and Bobbers

Badges and Bobbers is a fishing event hosted by the West St. Paul Police Department in partnership with Fishing for Life, a local organization that creates opportunities for building relationships by hosting hands-on fishing events and mentoring programs for youth and families in the Twin Cities.

In 2023 this event was partially funded by the Minnesota Chiefs of Police Foundation Community Partnership Grant.
