is a great partnership between law enforcement and
the Missouri Special Olympics. Law Enforcement officers from across
the state have shown their support for the Special Olympics by holding
a Torch Run every year during the month of May. St. Francois County
law enforcement has been involved with the Torch Run since 1996.
The Sheriff's Department, Desloge Police, Farmington Police and the Missouri
State Highway Patrol have all traditionally participated in the run.
