SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (KELO AM) - Underprivileged kids, ages fifteen and under, are going fishing with local law enforcement Saturday at Family Park in northwest Sioux Falls.

Henkel says officers from Sioux Falls police; Game, Fish and Parks and the Highway Patrol will fish with the kids. He says the goals are to get to know them, be a postive role model and introduce them to the outdoors. He says the'll teach the kids some of the tips and tricks to fishing, much like the lessons they learned from their fathers.
Henkel says Scheels donated tackle for the kids to keep and Dakota Angler donated bait.
