Angler Youth Program

Angler Youth Program

The Alameda Police Department (APD) is holding several days of fishing for children six to 15 years old. APD’s Casting with Cops events will take place Tuesdays and Thursdays between July 19 to July 28, and on Monday, August 1 and Wednesday, August 3.

The event is designed to connect officers and Alameda youth through educational fishing expeditions. Officers will work side-by-side with kids helping them bait, cast, hook, and release fish. During each trip, members of APD and California Department of Fish and Wildlife will teach kids about fishing conservation, water pollution, and water safety around our island.

Weather permitting, APD has six trips planned. All participants will be provided a life jacket and fishing equipment. Each event will begin at 8 a.m. Apply by visiting, www.alamedaca.gov/Shortcut-Content/News-Media/Casting-With-Cops.
