The Ridgefield Police Benevolent Association hosted its annual Cops & Robbers 5K to benefit the Women’s Center of Greater Danbury on Sunday, Nov. 3.

The runners got a head start, and then the police officers “gave chase.” Collectively, Ridgefield officers passed over 1,300 runners, raising funds for the nonprofit on what organizers called a beautiful morning.

“The Women’s Center would like to express huge thanks to the PBA and all of the officers who participated and organized this fun event,” said Glori Norwitt, chair of the Women’s Center Board of Directors. “The donations will help the Women’s Center continue to serve the men, women and children of our town with free services of counseling, education, shelter, crisis intervention, in Danbury Superior Court, and more.”
