Battle of the Badges – Police and Fire Compete for Charity

Freeport, Illinois — It’s the battle we’ve all been waiting for. Freeport Police and Freeport Fire in a chest pounding, heart racing showdown to the end on a basketball court with the winner being, a good local cause in our community.

On January 28th, 2017 you’ll have your chance to watch this Battle of the Badges take place at Immanuel Lutheran School.

Beginning at 2:00 p.m. come watch a kids shoot a round and then at 3:00 p.m. get ready because the big game between Police and Fire begins.

The Freeport Police seem to feel pretty confident about the game, saying on their Facebook page, “If you are interested in watching us demolish the Freeport Fire Department in a game of basketball here is the information”.

Freeport Fire responded by saying, “They say they’re going to “demolish” us….. obviously they don’t know what we do for a living”.

We don’t know about you, but those sound like battle words to us with two local teams, ready for a game that’s sure to entertain everyone.

Halftime entrainment will be provided as well as concessions and the event is FREE to attend.

Immanuel Lutheran School is located at 1964 W. Pearl City Road.
