Rehoboth Police Officers participate in Wing Eating Contest
On March 30th 2017 several Rehoboth Police Officers participated in an annual wing eating contest sponsored by the Children’s Advocacy Center of Bristol County. Rehoboth Officers challenged 22 other teams from various participating Bristol County MA Police and Fire Departments. The event took place at Whites of Westport and has been held annually for the past several years to help raise awareness of April as Child Abuse Prevention Month.
The Children’s Advocacy Center (CAC) of Bristol County, was created in July 2007, as a private, 501c(3) non-profit agency providing a coordinated response to disclosures and allegations of child sexual abuse, severe physical abuse and witness to violence. Populations served include children (ages infant-18) and adults with intellectual disabilities (ages 18+). The CAC works closely with a multi-disciplinary team, comprised of law enforcement, Massachusetts Department of Children & Families, Bristol County District Attorney’s office, Massachusetts Pedi-SANE program and community-based agencies, the center provides direct services to children and families from any of the 20 towns and cities in Bristol County, Massachusetts.
Although the Rehoboth Officers did not win this year’s competition it was a great event to be part of. Pictured in the attached photo are Rehoboth Officers (L-R) Ofc. Jasson Ferreira, Ofc. Jacob Miranda, Sgt. Brian Ramos, Ofc. Louis Dibacco and Ofc. Craig Warish.
