NIU Police Cmdr. Don Rodman joined area first responders from the NIU Police Department, DeKalb and Sycamore Police Departments, the DeKalb County Sheriff’s Office, and DeKalb Fire Department as they braved the heat Wednesday to face off in a friendly game of softball at the Ralph McKenzie Field on NIU campus.
NIU Police partnered with Johnsonville Brats, who brought in a 65-foot grill to serve up free bratwurst, with complimentary chips and drinks provided by Target and Pepsi. The family-friendly community event was free, but spectators were encouraged to donate to Illinois Special Olympics, with $1,600 raised, Rodman said.
