On Monday, June 4, officers from the UC Riverside Police Department participated with other law enforcement agencies and family members in the annual Special Olympics Law Enforcement Torch Run as it made its way through Southern California.

Officers took over the torch on University Avenue between the I-60 freeway and West Campus Drive. Runners passed through campus on West Campus Drive to Canyon Crest Drive and then to Central Avenue where they handed off the torch to FBI-employee runners.

The runners were escorted by marked police vehicles and motorcycles to ensure their safety, as well as to bring attention to the Special Olympics.
