Ashtabula, OH was the scene of the annual FOP sponsored Law Enforcement Polar Bear Plunge.
Attending and swimming representing the local lodge was Jason Shaffer.  Jason is our Lodge Sgt at Arms and is an officer with the Edgerton Police Dept.  This is his 2nd year participating in the plunge and his warmest as he says the air temperature was 60 degrees with the water temperture 36 degrees.  Considerably warmer then last year when the temperatures were -13 degrees air and 30 degrees water!  Jason was able to raise over $595 in donations which will be used for the Ohio Special Olympics.  All together, there were 342 Police Officers and $74,000 in donations were raised.
