UW-La Crosse students donate money to police department

UW-La Crosse students are presenting the police department with $4,000 this week in the memory of one of their own.

The university’s Chi Phi Fraternity raised the money a couple of weekends ago during the Sara Softball tournament, held for Sara Hougom, who lost her life in 2012. Students awarded the police department with the check this week.

Officers say the money will be used for the Community Policing Program and the Neighborhood Officer team.
