The Torch has been Passed!

Our team had a great time at the 32nd Annual Law Enforcement Torch Run International Conference that was held in Orlando, Florida! We were able to meet with around 1,000 law enforcement and Special Olympics representatives for a weekend of learning, inspiration, and fun. At the conference, the Torch has been passed to us and next year the Law Enforcement Torch Run will be hosted here in Louisiana!
