RIO RANCHO, N.M. (KRQE) – The Rio Rancho Police Department is competing against itself for the good of their community.
The Criminal Investigations Division, the SWAT team, and the traffic section spread out across town to collect food donations. The different units compete against each other in a friendly competition to see which one can top the scales at the weigh-in.
Ultimately, the officers take the most pride in helping their community. “We want to help out those members of our community so that they can have a better Thanksgiving and a better holiday,” said Captain Andrew Rodriguez of the Rio Rancho Police Department. “Our officers are using that friendly competition to see who can bring in the most.”
All the food collected will go to Saint Felix Pantry and Storehouse West.
