The 2013 Southern California Law Enforcement Torch Run involved more than 450 officers who proudly carried the Special Olympics Torch more than 1,500 miles and through more than 200 communities. The officers, representing law enforcement agencies throughout the state, collected donations for their participation and are sponsored by civic groups, local businesses and generous friends. More than 3,000 officers also raised more than $1.4 million in 2014 through various special fundraising events. Officers volunteer their time to support their local athletes. All funds raised by law enforcement personnel go to Special Olympics.
