The Lake in the Hills Police Department Law Enforcement Explorer Post 1096, a group of youth volunteers who receive a broad range of specialized law enforcement training, will host a fundraiser Sept. 18 at Buffalo Wild Wings, 5755 Route 14.
Buffalo Wild Wings will donate
15 percent of all pretaxed food sales, excluding alcohol and promotional discounts, from any guest who presents a special fundraising ticket during business hours from 11 a.m. to midnight that day. The ticket can be found on the police department’s Facebook page at www.facebook.com/LakeintheHillsPolice.
The goal of the program is to give young adults ages 14 to 20 an accurate representation of what it’s like be a police officer. Volunteers are trained in radio communications, crowd control, traffic stops and other exercises.
The post is funded through donations from area businesses and other fundraising efforts.
