SHREWSBURY – The Shrewsbury Police Department will be participating in the 2nd annual Polar Plunge at Polar Park hosted by the Special Olympics of Massachusetts on Saturday, March 2.

A group of law enforcement professionals gathered last year to host an event that would bring communities and law enforcement agencies together in Central Massachusetts. The committee is composed of representatives from Worcester, Shrewsbury, the University of Massachusetts, UMass Memorial, Tufts University and the Massachusetts State Police among others. Since the committee’s formation, it has hosted events to include a sensory friendly touch-a-truck and a movie night. It continues to search for new ways to engage with the community.

This year the Worcester Polar Plunge will be bringing the newly acquired “mobile plunge pool” into Polar Park. Participants will brave the cold temperatures and help support more than 14,000 athletes of all abilities in sports training and competitions the Special Olympics offers year-round. All are invited to participate in the plunge, including individuals, friends and families, and teams representing schools, businesses, organizations and clubs.

Check in for the event will begin at noon, where participants are asked to arrive at Gate D (Madison Street) and the plunge will begin at 1 p.m.
