2020 Police Week 5K "Team DSS"

NPW 5K Walk/Run


The NPW 5K Walk/Run is a family event.  Everyone is welcome!  The overall team time is based upon the top three finishers from each team, not everyone, so feel free to walk, stroll, or jog.  Come join Team-DSS as we continue to keep our record of winning the NPW 5K for the third year in a row!

NPW is a time to honor the 134 human and 28 K9 lives lost in the line of duty in 2019.
