The 4th Precinct of the St. Louis County Police hosted a fishing tournament annually, which they were on the verge of discontinuing due to the workload and decline in participation. Local 110 President Rob Reed, who had previously fished the tournament, approached the Executive Board and the Membership of Local 110 with the idea for Local 110 to host the fishing tournament. In its inaugural year, it raised over $20,000 compared to the $5,000 which was raised the year before and has steadily increased ever since.
About theSt. Louis County Police Welfare Association
The St. Louis County Police Welfare Association is a non-for-profit that acts as a support alliance for members and their families in times of need. These funds are used to assist officers with recovery from injury/illness, holding events for fallen officers and funding collegiate scholarships. The Welfare association receives 90% of the proceeds from the tournament.

In an effort to give back, each year the Cops and Bobbers committee chooses a local non-profit to receive 10% of the proceeds. CHADS is a 501(c)(3) organization offering Signs of Suicide®, Family Support, and Social Emotional Well-being programs to advance the awareness and prevention of depression and suicide.
