Mesa Public Safety Foundation Hosts Annual Golf Tournament

April 11, 2008

The Mesa Public Safety Foundation, a non-profit organization who actively supports the Mesa Police Department and Mesa Fire Department, is hosting their 31st annual Cops & Robbers Golf Tournament at Longbow Golf Club in East Mesa on Saturday, April 12, 2008.

The golf tournament began in 1977 and was originally names the Beat City Hall Golf Tournament. The mayor and city officials would post a golf score and participants of the tournament would compete. Some time after, the Mesa Public Safety Foundation incorporated the tournament and named it Cops & Robbers. Today, the tournament solicits corporate and individual sponsors. Over the past 31 years, the tournament has raised significant funds which has allowed the Foundation to assist many police and fire personnel, including their families.

Since 1978, the Mesa Public Safety Foundation has been dedicated to honoring police, fire, and other public safety employees. The annual golf tournament is a great aid to successfully complete the Foundation's goals.

President of the Mesa Public Safety Foundation, Mr. Milt Lee, stated, "Our Foundation is solely operated by volunteers and is committed to assisting the public safety community. We are very proud of that."
