Law enforcement officers from a variety of agencies hit the links today for a day of golf.

The Oneida Indian Nation Police Department Charity Golf tournament tee'd off just after 9 this morning and golfers were able to get in a few holes before the rain moved in.

The tournament raises money for the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial in Washington D.C., which honors officers who have died in the line of duty.

And although the Oneida Indian Nation Police Department is unlike other departments, it's chief says the mission is still the same.

"It's a celebration of not only the police department, but the cooperation and the fellowship and working relationships that we have established between those departments.  In effect, we're all doing the same job.  We are being police officers and protecting and serving the peoples of the Oneida Indian Nation, their guests, and their employees," said Joe Smith, OINPD Chief.

The Oneida Indian Nation Police Department is celebrating 20 years as a police force.

And we're told over $7,000 was raised today for fallen officers.
