NEPBA Welcomes back Law Enforcement Torch Run International Conference

After a two-year hiatus, the Law enforcement Torch Run International Conference came back for 2022. From November 3rd to the 5th Law enforcement Torch Run (LETR) Executive Boards from around the world came together to celebrate the successes of their law enforcement officers and athletes, who continue to benefit from the sporting opportunities that everyone’s hard work and compassion have provided.

The New England Police Benevolent had a number of members in attendance. Below is a photo taken of the Special Olympics Massachusetts team with NEPBA members Lt. Larry “LJ” Jedrey of Everett Superiors and Ofc. Andy Larose of Marlborough Police Department. Also, in attendance was Executive Vice President Christopher Hoar and Ofc. Tyler Seeley of the Sabattus Police Department.

Thank you all for your continued dedication and continued commitment to make a difference in the world through the Law Enforcement Torch Run for Special Olympics.

The Law Enforcement Torch Run for Special Olympics is the largest public awareness vehicle and grass-roots fundraiser for Special Olympics. Known as Guardians of the Flame, law enforcement members and Special Olympics athletes carry the Flame of Hope into the Opening Ceremony of local competitions, and into Special Olympics State, Provincial, National, Regional and World Games. Annually, more than 100,000 dedicated and compassionate law enforcement members carry the “Flame of Hope,” symbolizing courage and celebration of diversity uniting communities around the globe.

The LETR engages law enforcement worldwide championing acceptance and inclusion for people with intellectual disabilities, starting first with their own communities.
