Cops Gone Wild helps Special Olympics

ONALASKA, Wis. (WEAU) -- Police officers from area departments took some time away from the streets to benefit the Special Olympics.

The fourth annual Cops Gone Wild is going at Buffalo Wild wings in Onalaska.

Onalaska police officers are helping out the servers.

A portion of the proceeds help to defray some of the costs associated with Special Olympics, such as uniforms and travel.

“Having coached Special Olympics in the past, I see how hard that the athletes work every day. They come, they give in 100%, and it’s a little bit that we can do to help them,” said Investigator Peter Jakowski, Onalaska Police Department

The event runs until 8:00 p.m. Wednesday night.
