On June 2, police officers from all over Proviso Township and beyond ran from the police station in Westchester to Doc Ryan’s in Forest Park.

The event was one leg of the Law Enforcement Torch Run for Special Olympics. The annual run, which is open to all employees of police departments and their relatives, takes place nationwide and is designed to raise awareness and money for the Special Olympics movement.

Here are some sights from this year’s run:
