The Bozeman Police Department participates annually in the Law Enforcement Torch Run, the largest grass-roots fundraising movement for the Special Olympics.
The Law Enforcement Torch Run is run by police officers, sheriff's deputies, support staff, police volunteers and other law enforcement professionals from around the world. Currently, close to 90,000 police professionals in over 35 countries participate in this worldwide effort to raise money and awareness for Special Olympics.
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.
The term “Law Enforcement Torch Run” is also used at times to define all of the special events and fundraising activities that law enforcement conducts to contribute to this campaign. This includes events such as the Tip-a-Cop and Polar Bear Plunge, both of which take place in Bozeman each year. Look for each event this year!
