The term “pig” used to be an epithet hurled at police officers, before they embraced it and made it a badge of honor. The Marco Island Police Foundation has sponsored pig roasts, cooking whole hogs, and Saturday afternoon, they held the third annual MIPF Rib Cook-off at the Marco Island Brewery, with proceeds benefiting the organization’s scholarship fund.
