Dunwoody Police Officers are FREEZIN’ FOR A REASON


What is the Polar Plunge?

In a nutshell, participants collect pledges in exchange for the opportunity to jump into icy waters of Lake Lanier each year. All proceeds collected by “plungers” benefit the athletes of Special Olympics Georgia (SOGA). Prizes are awarded for the best costume, highest fundraiser, highest fundraising team, and more!

For those who do not love the Polar Bear habitat, there are areas to keep you warm – such as heated areas, warm concessions, and fun souvenirs. Also, stay tuned to learn more about SOGA's Chicken Plunge.

Chief Grogan is the past State Director for the Law Enforcement Torch Run program, which raises funds and awareness for Special Olympics Georgia. Law Enforcement Officers from across the state raise funds throughout the year with various fundraising activities. Statewide in 2010, police officers and agencies across the state raised almost $700,000. Their goal is to reach $1,000,000 within the next couple of years.

The Dunwoody Police Department proudly participates in the Polar Plunge each year in February. Check out our News and Press Releases page between December and January each year for DPD's latest participation details and how you can sponsor or join our team!
