The Calcasieu Parish Sheriffs Office along with their DARE division will be holding their annual Youth Fishing Derby in September.

This is a chance to get the kids outdoors and get to interact with other kids and police officers in a fun atmosphere.

Kim Myers with the CPSO said,

Participants, who must be 15 years of age or younger, are asked to bring their own fishing gear, bait, lawn chairs, and a cooler to bring their fish home.  Refreshments will be furnished.
