DARLINGTON - The City of Darlington Police Department will be hosting its annual Police Brat Feed and Ball Game beginning at 5 p.m. Thursday at Riverside Park, behind Piggly Wiggly in Darlington.

Officers will be serving brats, hot dogs, burgers, chips and beverages until gone. The food is free of charge but free-will donations will be accepted.

At 7 p.m., law enforcement officers from the local, county and state level will comprise "The Enforcers" softball team that will face up against "The Community All Stars" team, which is comprised of Darlington business representatives and community members.

This is the 19th year the department has hosted the event, which benefits prevention programs in Darlington, like the Darlington Drug Abuse Resistance Education program. The D.A.R.E. program is taught in first and third grades at Holy Rosary Catholic School and in fifth grade at the Darlington Elementary-Middle School. It includes followup presentations in the seventh and eighth grades as well as a Role Model program in the junior and senior levels. In addition, the program provides scholarships to graduating Darlington High School seniors.
