The Rock County Sheriff's Office has teamed up with the Cops and Kids Foundation to offer the Cops and Bobbers fishing program.

The Cops and Kids Foundation is an area nonprofit organization whose programs and services provide law enforcement with the tools necessary to implement award-winning community service.

The primary goal of the Cops and Bobbers program is to teach kids how to fish. The goal of Cops and Bobbers is to get kids hooked on fishing rather than drugs and crime. Kids will get to interact with local cops and form a positive and everlasting relationship.

In 2021, the Sheriff's Office is offering three Cops and Bobbers outings: June 15th at Anchor in Edgerton, July 13th at Kiwanis Pond in Janesville, and August 17th at Riverside Park - Harry C. Moore Pavilion in Beloit.    


Who Can Participate?

Each event, there are twenty (20) spots available for kids age 7-12. Parents or guardians of kids interested in participating should complete the online registration form under Cops and Bobbers Event Registration below.

Life jackets, fishing supplies, and a meal will be provided during the event. Registered kids will also receive an event t-shirt.

If you have questions concerning eligibility, registration, or volunteering, please contact Deputy Cisneros at 608-757-7941 or [email protected]
