Law enforcement officers run through the streets of Wilmington as part of the annual 160-mile Torch Run leading up to Summer Games.

One of the organization's largest grass-roots volunteer movements involves hundreds of thousands of law enforcement officers throughout the world volunteering their time to raise awareness and money for Special Olympics. Here in Delaware, every agency is represented in law enforcement's year-round effort.

Police officers' volunteer efforts include organizing fundraising events, soliciting advertisements for the SODE Yearbook, and having a presence at all awards ceremonies, regardless of the size of the event.

In its 31-year history, Delaware Law Enforcement will have raised over $6.5 million for Special Olympics Delaware.
