2011 Law Enforcement Torch Run for Special Olympics
The Law Enforcement Torch Run for Special Olympics is an annual event where Law Enforcement throughout the world run with the "Flame of Hope" bringing awareness and support to Special Olympics. The Arcadia Police Department is proud to participate in the event, taking the hand-off of the torch near Huntington Drive and Fifth Avenue from the Monrovia Police Department. Our personnel carry the torch west on Huntington Drive, south on Santa Anita Avenue, and turn west on Las Tunas Drive, ultimately handing off the torch to Deputies from the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department, Temple Station, near Baldwin Avenue.
The torch reached Arcadia at about 10:30 am this morning where 7 members of APD carried on this tradition for a very worthy cause. Thanks to all our runners and support personnel for their participation! Be sure to visit our Arcadia Police Department Facebook Page for additional photos.
