Community members are invited to come connect with officers from the Rochester Police department both on and off the ice at the third annual Skate with a Cop event.
Families are also invited to watch and cheer on members of the department as they play in a hockey game against the Granite State Cannons Veterans Hockey Club.
Admission to the event is free. Skate rentals will also be free, but on a first come, first serve basis.
“This event has become a great tradition for our department,” Chief Toussaint said, “and it’s something our officers look forward to taking part in every winter.”
