The 2nd annual Shelburne Police Polar Plunge for the Special Olympics was held on February 18, 2019 and was an incredible success. Over $34000.00 were raised for this deserving cause, which is an amazing tally for our small town. The Shelburne Police Service wishes to thank everyone who supported this event.

The obvious support from our town and the generosity of everyone who contributed makes me proud that our police service has such strong relationship with this community.
