District 22 Police Officers Take Polar Plunge  

 The 22nd Chicago police district continued its philanthropic approach with the community through their support of Special Olympics Illinois.  

A polar plunge featuring more than 10 police officers taking the plunge in a cold, dunk tank in the 22nd District police parking lot took place on March 23. The funds raised from the event supplemented the 2024 Law Enforcement Torch Run Polar Plunge benefiting Special Olympics.  

The event occurred weeks after 22nd District Commander Brian Kinnane took the 2024 Chicago Polar Plunge at North Avenue Beach. Kinnane was a part of the team Declan’s Clan, which raised more than $2,000 for Special Olympics Illinois. He was joined on the Polar Plunge team by 22nd District District Officer Jack O’Keefe, Marist freshman Caitlin Kinnane and Sean Giblin.  

The district has also supported The Run to Remember, the Chicago Police Memorial Foundation’s annual 5K run/walk that raises funds to support families of fallen and catastrophically injured Chicago police officers.
