Jun 6, 2017

On Friday June 9, 2017, the Brantford Police Service will be hosting its annual Law Enforcement Torch Run and BBQ in support of the Special Olympics.

 

 

 

This year marks the 30th anniversary of the Law Enforcement Torch Run. The Ontario Law Enforcement Torch Run® (LETR) is the largest public awareness vehicle and grass-roots fundraiser for Special Olympics.  Known honourably 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 Provincial, National, Regional and World Games.  Worldwide annually, more than 97,000 dedicated and compassionate law enforcement members carry the "Flame of Hope,? symbolizing courage and celebration of diversity uniting communities around the globe.

Special Olympics athletes will join participants from the BPS and students on Friday June 9th 2017 at 11:00 a.m. for photo opportunities on the track at Pauline Johnson Collegiate & Vocational School at 627 Colborne Street. The Torch Run will take place from 11:30 a.m. till 12:30 p.m. on the school track. The change of location adds to the community involvement as students who wanted to take part and raise funds for the Special Olympics are now able to attend and be a part of the event. 

We invite members of the community and our media partners to join us at Pauline Johnson Collegiate & Vocational School, to cheer on participants, purchase a special edition t-shirt and/or join us for a charity BBQ all in support of the Special Olympics.

 

 All proceeds from the event will go to support Special Olympics activities, programs and travel to games, accommodations, meals, athlete training and development initiatives in school.

Protecting Your Property

We would like to remind the community that with warmer temperatures comes the
increased responsibility of ensuring your valuables are protected. Warmer weather
usually has us bringing out valuables such as lawn furniture, garden decorations and
bicycles. This is also a time when we leave doors and windows open and unlocked.
Citizens are encouraged to take a second to look inside their vehicles for items (wallets,
electronics, change, GPS, garage door openers, ect) that may make them an attractive target for thieves, remove the items and then lock the vehicle.

If it is valuable to you, please don?t leave an item in a place where it can be easily stolen.

We encourage everyone to report all incidents of theft and/or attempt theft of your property to the Brantford Police Service.
