Every Tuesday during the summer, Duluth Police Officers and kids in the community go fishing, which is part of the department's ‘Get Hooked on Fishing’ program. This program builds relationships between youth and officers with the Duluth Police Department.
The program started in 2017 with a grant from Cabela's and has grown tremendously since then. In 2019, Minnesota DNR gave another grant to the program. The Duluth Police Department now has a pontoon, which is used to take kids out on Lake Superior.
Lunch and fishing equipment are provided to the kids during the 'Get Hooked on Fishing' program.
