Rockville Police to Take the Plunge for Special Olympics Maryland

Officers to Participate in Polar Bear Plunge Fundraiser for Eighth Year

Rockville, Maryland, Jan. 5 – A team from the Rockville City Police Department (RCPD) will take a dip in the chilly Chesapeake Bay to support Special Olympics Maryland, as part of the 21st Annual Maryland State Police Polar Bear Plunge.

Members of the RCPD will participate in a police plunge at noon on Friday, Jan. 27 as part of a weekend of “freezin’ for a reason” at Sandy Point State Park, in Annapolis. A plunge for students will be held Thursday, Jan. 26. Public plunges are scheduled for Saturday, Jan. 28.

This will mark the eighth year that RCPD officers will take the plunge. Over the past seven years, Rockville police have raised about $25,000 for Special Olympics Maryland. The department has also sent representatives to the winter and summer games as medal presenters.
