ROME, NY – An evening of dinner and dancing in Rome Saturday.

And it was all for a good cause.

The 4th annual Rome Policeman’s Ball was held at the Teugega Country Club.

Proceeds from the event went to the Rome Police Department’s “Shop With A Cop” holiday charity.

“Nobody ever calls the police when something good is going on” says Rome Police Chief Kevin Beach.

“So to see us as a friend, as a mentor, as someone to look up to when there’s not that stress or tension. It’s a great feeling.”

Just before Christmas, Rome officers will take area needy children shopping to buy presents for themselves and their loved ones.
