South county police run for Special Olympics

Edmonds and Mountlake Terrace police officers spent Friday participating in the 2012 Law Enforcement Torch Run in support of Special Olympics Washington. They were joined by emergency dispatchers from SNOCOM, which serves south Snohomish County.

The run this year started in Blaine and ended at Joint Base Lewis-McChord.

South county police and dispatchers got the torch in the 21000 block of Highway 99 and “carried it with pride to 244th Street SW,” Edmonds police Sgt. Mike Blackburn said.

Shoreline police took over from there. South Snohomish County had 17 law enforcement runners in all.

“Additionally, a support group of volunteers from all three agencies assisted with traffic control, support vehicles and photography of the event,” Blackburn said.
