Officers and deputies from the Dalton Police Department and Whitfield County Sheriff's Office participate in fundraising throughout the year for Special Olympics Georgia, and this morning personnel from both agencies participated in the symbolic culmination of that effort: the 2012 Law Enforcement Torch Run.
Runners carried the torch from the old city court building on Waugh Street down Thornton Avenue to Bry-Man's Plaza, and then moved to Highway 41 where they ran through a pep rally at Valley Point Elementary School. From there, the runners continued on to the Gordon County line. The run covered approximately nine miles.
