Dunk a cop for a cause at national night out

Each year, a local member of the community is selected - who is in need of support. The Summit Police Department and Summit Fire Department volunteer to be dunked in the infamous dunk tank at National Night Out. Three tosses to dunk the cop is $5.00. All of the funds raised are donated to the individual in need. 

Check back in early summer for information on this year's recipient of the Dunk a Cop for a Cause funds.
