NSWPF ‘freezin for a reason’ to raise funds for Law Enforcement Torch Run

NSW Police Commissioner Andrew Scipione will address the media this afternoon before joining 56 fellow swimmers for the hair-raising plunge into Bondi Icebergs to help raise money for the Law Enforcement Torch Run, NSW Police say.

Each swimmer – including more than 50 senior NSW Police Officers – has been working hard to attract sponsors for their icy dip in recent weeks, with more than $69,000 raised for the charity, to date.

NSW Police have been active supporters of The Law Enforcement Torch Run since it was established in 2006.

The charity supports intellectually disabled people living in NSW via their participation in the Special Olympics, which gives people opportunities to achieve personal goals through sports training and competitions across Australia.
