The Appleton Police Department took kids on a fishing trip Saturday morning. It's part of an event called Badges and Bobbers where officers get kids involved in fishing.

 They were paired up with an officer and fished along the shores of the Fox River.

“The event is designed to bring police officers and children together in an event to break those barriers that officers are mean and scary people, and give the kids the opportunity  to learn the sport of fishing as well as the opportunity to catch a big fish,” said Sergeant Leon Fischer.
