Operation Rio Grande
Outreach Officers Celebrate Recovery Day
Members of the Utah Highway Patrol’s Operation Rio Grande outreach officer team joined community members at the 2018 Utah Recovery Day Celebration in Salt Lake City. Troopers Kunz and Trooper Zubal reconnected with individuals who they first met near the Rio Grande District and were able to engage with them on a new and sober level. These individuals are stellar examples of how treatment is helping move this community forward and how compassionate policing is making a difference.
The 15th Annual Recovery Day celebration supports and empowers individuals in recovery and recognizes the contributions of family members, service providers, and allies who come together to raise awareness that we can recover from addiction by creating hope, healing, and health through many pathways.The day included a 5K Run for Recovery, sponsor and vendor exhibits, speakers, live music, food trucks, and family friendly activities.
