[ARCHIVED] Holland DPS holding the annual "Battle of the Badges" charity softball game

The Holland Department of Public Safety would like to invite the public and members of the media to this year’s “Battle of the Badges” Charity Softball Game. This event is free to the public and will feature Holland Department of Public Safety Police Officers and Fire Firefighters. The event will be held on Saturday, August 19th at 10:00am at the Matt Urban Sports Complex (270 E 32nd St, Holland, MI, 49423). All proceeds will be donated to the Harbor Humane Society

The Harbor Humane Society was founded in 1956 and has worked closely with our department over the years.  On average, over 3,500 animals enter the Harbor Humane Society’s Facility each year, with NONE being euthanized based on the length of their stay or needed space at the facility.  Over the last few years, the Harbor Humane Society has seen a rise in the number of animals which have been turned into their facility, and thus need continued support. We are grateful for the work of the Harbor Humane Society and look forward to partnering with them for this year’s event.  This event would certainly not be possible without the support of the community and local businesses. We are thankful for this year's sponsors and look forward to seeing you at the event. Any questions about the event can be directed to Sergeant Adam Israels at
