What is the Law Enforcement Torch Run – What is the LETR?
The Law Enforcement Torch Run began in 1981 when Police Chief Richard LaMunyon of Wichita, Kansas created the Torch Run. He thought the Torch Run would help law enforcement be active in the community and support Special Olympics Kansas. In 1983, Chief LaMunyon presented the program to the International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP). With the IACP’s support, LETR soon became the movement’s largest public awareness and fundraising group for Special Olympics. The Law Enforcement Torch Run continues to grow with new participation from law enforcement officers every year,
