REDLANDS (CBS) — Jonesing for some football?

The Inland Empire Enforcers — including players from the Redlands and Chino Police Departments, Riverside County and San Bernardino Sheriff’s Departments, San Bernardino County Probation officer and the US Coast Guard — will take on the LAPD Centurions — made up of players from the Los Angeles Police Department — at the 5th annual Cops-N-Jocks Bowl, Saturday March 17.

Translation: the field is filled with big, tough dudes you don’t wanna mess with. So the game will surely be intense!

Kickoff is at 5 p.m. The game is being played at Citrus Valley High School (800 West Pioneer Avenue  Redlands, CA 92374.)

Organizers say this is a full-contact game. And these guys play for keeps — and bragging rights. And, they’re playing for a good cause, to boot.

Money raised benefits the Wounded Warrior Project, an organization that helps wounded veterans returning home from war as well as their families back home. Their goal: $10,000.

Admission is only $5. Children under 12, are free. Tickets are available at the gate.

The half-time show? It’s not Madonna, but super nonetheless. A K-9 demonstration from the Inland Empire Police Canine Association and soldiers from the Wounded Warrior Project will perform.
