ODESSA - Police officers in Odessa continue to work to raise funds for the Peace Officer Memorial Foundation.

This time, they held a no-tap bowling classic.

Right now, officers are trying to raise money for the non-profit, which honors the five officers killed in the line of duty back in 2007.

Other activities included raffles and a silent auction.

They say they're short of their goal though.

They want enough funds to help build a memorial statue in honor of the fallen officers.

So far, Odessa Police have held several fundraisers, including a gold tournament, drag races, and T-shirt and cap sales.
