Dalton Police Department officers will take part in a special "Polar Plunge" event Monday afternoon.
Officials will meet at Dalton High School for the event, which begins at 2:00 p.m.
The event is meant to raise awareness for special needs students at the school and in surrounding areas.
Officers will jump into the pool at Dalton High School, and students who helped with fundraising for the Polar Plunge will also get to participate.
DPD officers also took part in a separate Polar Plunge fundraiser for Special Olympics Georgia on Saturday on Acworth Beach, by jumping into the chilly waters.
On Saturday, the participating officers met athlete Shaquille O'Neal, who was on hand to help promote the event. The officers, who wore penguin outfits, also won the event's "best costume" award.
Officials say that the Dalton Police Department and students from Dalton High School and Dalton Middle School raised a total of $4,000 in support of Special Olympics Georgia.
Chancellor Kent Syverud said disciplinary actions against the individual students involved could include suspension or expulsion.
A traffic investigation is underway in Ooltewah.
