On Tuesday, several law enforcement agencies in the Salt Lake Valley participated in the Law Enforcement Torch Run for Special Olympics. DPS and UHP joined Unified Police Department, West Jordan Police Department and South Jordan Police Department in the run.

Commissioner Anderson, Deputy Commissioners Higgs and Rigby, members of the Utah Highway Patrol administration, members of POST Administration and staff, assistant attorneys general and UHP troopers ran a portion of the route. They were escorted by UHP and West Jordan motors.

We are proud to be part of this effort to raise awareness and funds for the Special Olympics. You can read more about the Torch Run here: http://www.letr.org
