Local law enforcement professionals, including University Police, participated in the 2012

Law Enforcement Torch Run for Special Olympics by carrying the torch through Plymouth, Ashland and Holderness enroute to Durham for the start of the Special Olympics Summer Games May 31. The Torch Run is expected to raise about a quarter of a million dollars for Special Olympics New Hampshire. New Hampshire’s Law Enforcement Torch Run began in 1985 when Wolfeboro Police Chief Stan Stevens urged his colleagues to join in the nationwide event. The Law Enforcement Torch Run transforms communities by inspiring people to open their minds, to accept and include people with intellectual disabilities, celebrating differences among all people … recognizing and respecting the similarities we all share.
