Police running club returns

COM-Run with a Cop LogoPolice Chief Joel Rush said the Westfield Police Dept. is excited to announce the return of the Run with a Cop program. Rush said the program promotes the ever-important relationship between the police and community by focusing on the safety and fitness of the public. Run with a Cop parallels Westfield Mayor Andy Cook and the City of Westfield’s campaign of promoting health and fitness through sports and recreation.

The Run with a Cop program is a nonprofit running club designed to promote running, walking and biking as a healthy lifestyle while focusing on trail safety. The program is free to the community and welcomes those of all fitness levels. The program’s added bonus is that it will strengthen the communications between the police and members of the community.

The group meets at 6 p.m. every Wednesday at the Blue Mile located in the Cool Creek Plaza starting on March 27.
