It’s that time of year again. The annual Special Olympics Law Enforcement Torch Run takes place this year on Thursday, June 5th. For years the Waterbury Police Department has been a proud participant and sponsor for this event drawing a large number of runners. This run is a police escorted non-competitive slow run through Waterbury. You can run the entire route or any portion of it that you choose. The purpose is to raise money for the Special Olympics and demonstrate law enforce-ment’s commitment to Special Olympics. T-shirts and refreshments will be provided for runners. To sign up or for more information, please contact Lieutenant Steven Gilmore at 203-228-9397. All members of the Department are strongly encouraged to participate in this event. Any and all donations will be accepted. There will be collection envelopes in the Credit Union and the AO’s Office. Thank you for your support.
