Come experience the excitement of a police foot chase. Join in the fun on Saturday, September 12, 2015 at the Crossroads Mall in Portage, Michigan. Catch a fleeing suspect and win a prize! Find contraband along the course and win a prize! Locate witnesses for clues where to run next. Test your skills on the unconventional 3.5-mile “foot chase” challenge course. And be the fastest in your bracket to receive a medal.
Rather not run? Okay, then join in our barrier free non-competitive foot patrol walking event inside the beautiful Crossroads Mall. Study wanted posters before walking your beat inside the mall. Win prizes on the spot if you correctly identify our fugitives from justice during your patrol.
So who and how does this help? Proceeds from the Kazoo Area Foot Chase go to benefit Michigan Concerns of Police Survivors (MI-C.O.P.S.), Michigan’s all-volunteer 501(c)(3) non-profit chapter of the highly acclaimed National Concerns of Police Survivors. MI-C.O.P.S. responds whenever a police hero is killed in the line of duty to support and help the officer’s family and his or her co-workers to heal as they move forward from their loss.
In addition to the running and walking events, we also host a wide range of law enforcement and public safety exhibits, displays and demonstrations which are free and suitable for the whole family to enjoy. Come mingle with representatives from our supporting law enforcement agencies and ask questions about their equipment and the job that they do.
