Children chosen by The Banquet will go fishing with law enforcement officers this Friday at a private pond at the western edge of Sioux Falls.

Police Officer Sam Clemens says "Cast with a Cop" brings underprivileged kids together with officers from the Police Department, Game, Fish and Parks and the South Dakota Highway Patrol.

Clemens says the event gives kids a chance to get away and have positive contact with officers.

He says the Multi-Cultural Center will provide transportation, Game, Fish and Parks will supply equipment and Dakota Angler will furnish bait.

The event runs from 10am until 12:30pm Friday at a private pond owned by Soukup Construction near 12th Street and the Tea-Ellis Road.
