Fredericksburg police officers Paul Dooley and Patrick Reed are used to fighting crime, but in February they will be fighting the freezing cold.
Both are participating in the Polar Plunge Festival Feb. 4 in Virginia Beach to benefit the Special Olympics Virginia.
Dooley set a goal to raise $1,500 and he is very close at $1,492 so far.
Reed wants to raise $600 and he has $277 so far.

Dooley has done this before. According to his fundraising website, last year it was snowing with 50 mph winds and 16-foot seas.
