After a hard fought battle Portage Public Safety was able to score the last goal late in the third period to bring the score to 2-1. Kalamazoo Public Safety was unable to tie the game back up. Congrats to Portage Public Safety on the win!

The 8th annual battle of the badges game took place Sunday. The Portage Department of Public Safety has reclaimed the trophy to tie the rivalry back to 4-4! All proceeds were to benefit the Cuff and Ladder fund for Kalamazoo County.

The Cuff and Ladder Fund was created in 2006 by a Public Safety Officer and his wife who saw the need to have resources available for local first responders who became sick, injured or unable to serve their community.

The Cuff and Ladder Fund is a 501c3 non-profit organization based in Kalamazoo, Michigan that raises money and resources for sick, injured and in need Police, Fire and EMS responders who live or work in SW Michigan.
