Local Law Enforcement Carry the Torch for Special Olympics
Local peace officers, including tribal agencies, raised $1,350 for the Special Olympics on Thursday.
Participating in the Law Enforcement Torch Run, the 2.3 mile endeavor began at the Del Norte County Sheriff's Office and ended at the Crescent City Police Department. The run was spearheaded by the California Highway Patrol's Crescent City office.
