Boyne officers build soccer wall in Rotary Park

The Boyne City Police Department partnered with the Boyne Soccer Club on Thursday to build a “soccer wall” at the Rotary Park soccer field. The wall is used to simulate a soccer goal but it allows the players to continuously practice kicking the soccer balls without having to chase the ball down or using a Goal Tender.

The Boyne Soccer Club supplied the funds and the design and the officers supplied the labor. Boyne City Police Chief Jeff Gaither said “The Police Department wants to be involved with the community, and this was a great way to for the officers to do something for the kids. The officers did this on their own time because they care about this community and want to have a positive impact on the area youth.”

Gaither said it’s important for officers to connect with the community that they police. We want our citizens to know that we are not just someone in uniform. The officers said they are here because they like Boyne City and want good things to happen just like everyone else.

The Boyne City Police Officers were assisted by 9-1-1 dispatcher Glen Planck and Charlevoix County Sheriff Deputy Jeremy McAuliff who were there on their own time as well.
