Environmental Investigation Staff takes polar plunge to raise funds for charity
February 25, 2022
You might call it a "cold case" taken on by officers from the Environmental Investigation Section (EIS), a joint effort between the Michigan departments of Environment, Great Lakes (EGLE), and Energy and Natural Resources (DNR).
The officers recently took the "polar plunge" into an icy pool of water to raise funds for Special Olympics.
All EIS Officers participated in the Mt. Pleasant event, raising $6,800 for the charity that provides sports training and competition in a variety of Olympic-type sports for children and adults with intellectual disabilities, says Vence Woods, a first lieutenant with EIS. The group also won best team costume and most funds raised by law enforcement.
