Downtown Division police officers will be lacing up their skates for a friendly game of hockey at the McCauley ice rink tomorrow afternoon.

Tomorrow’s game (Thursday, Jan. 4, 2018) marks the 9th annual McCauley Cup. The hockey game was originally introduced by a Downtown Beat police officer who wanted to bridge the gap between police and the community. Since then, the game has grown in popularity and no matter the weather, youth from the neighbourhood are always ready to showcase their skills to the police officers and spectators.

 

“Every year there are more kids from the community that come out to play with the officers,” says McCauley Cup Coordinator and Downtown Beats Constable, Andrew Melney. “This annual event continues to strengthen the bond between the Edmonton Police Service and the neighbourhood.”

 

The puck drops at 1 p.m. at the McCauley outdoor skating rink, located at 96 Street and 108 Avenue. All media are invited to the game for photo/video opportunities.

 

Players and visitors will be able to enjoy a bonfire. Hot drinks and snacks will be provided. United Cycle has once again donated hockey jerseys to use during the game.

 

All spectators are encouraged to bring a non-perishable donation to the Edmonton Food Bank.

 

EPS would like to thank the Edmonton Police Foundation and the McCauley Community League for their support of the 9th Annual McCauley Cup.
