DLPD looking for softball teams to challenge

The Detroit Lakes Police Department is seeking softball teams that are up for the challenge of taking on local law enforcement officers in a friendly, competitive game of softball.

Not to be taken lightly, the DLPD holds a 1-1 record versus the Fergus Falls PD in the annual "Battle of the Badges" and a 2-0 record versus the Detroit Lakes Fire Department in the annual softball game.

If you're up for the challenge, make a $200 donation to the DLPD and contact Sgt. Robert Strand at 218-846-3204 to schedule your game with the DLPD. All monies raised will go to Mahnomen County Deputy Chris Dewey and/or local organizes to help support youth programs.

For questions, contact Strand at 846-3204 or e-mail
