The West Chicago Police Department again participates in the Coolest Event of the year—the Law Enforcement Torch Run Polar Plunge, where law enforcement officers take a flying leap into the frigid waters of an Illinois lake to support Special Olympics Illinois athletes. At the Law Enforcement Torch Run conference, the police department received a Bronze recognition award for its 2015 LETR fundraising efforts of a total of $6,663.25. The department wants to break the $10,000 mark for the first time in 2016 and it all starts with the Polar Plunge on March 6th.
