SMPD Embarks On Law Enforcement Torch Run

The San Marino Police Department recently joined the Law Enforcement Torch Run for Special Olympics Southern California, the largest public awareness vehicle and grassroots fundraiser for Special Olympics with more than 1,200 officers involved in Southern California championing acceptance and inclusion.

Similar in many ways to the Olympic torch relay, the Law Enforcement Torch Run consists of scheduled relay events, usually held in conjunction and coordination with Special Olympics functions. While carrying the flame, officers and athletes are referred to as “Guardians of the Flame.” In the broader sense, the Law Enforcement Torch Run is used to define all the special events, and fundraising activities that law enforcement conducts to contribute to this campaign.

The SMPD received the torch from the Pasadena Police Department and then passed the torch to the Alhambra Police Department.
