SFPD hosts 4th annual 'Run With The Cops' event

GAINESVILLE, Fla. Thursday morning was filled with fun and fitness for Santa Fe College students and law enforcement officers.

The 4th Annual “Run With The Cops" event was created by the Santa Fe College Police Department to interact more with the special needs community and to show their support.

Participants either walked or ran around the Santa Fe College track with the officers and they received a certificate after the finished their lap.

“We want them to feel safe and understand that public safety really cares about them,” Sante Fe College Police Department Capt. Ryan Woods said."That’s why we brought all our public safety friends and colleagues so they can see all of these venues that are here to help be safe."

The event was created by SFPD Chief Ed Book in 2014.
