Local Law Enforcement Supports Special Olympics


My Local News Arizona - Advertisement
The Arizona Special Olympics took place this past weekend, and local law enforcement agencies took great pride in supporting the event.
The Torch Run is a beloved tradition of the Special Olympics, and this year, police and sheriffs office played an important role. Representatives from the Yavapai County Sheriff’s Office and the Prescott and Prescott Valley Police Departments were on hand to join in the festivities.
Lieutenant Scott Stebbins, Sergeant Jason Kaufman, Deputy Chief James Edelstein and Community Services Officer Javier Martinez transported the torch through Prescott Valley on its route to the statewide Special Olympics games. These representatives biked and ran with the torch, and were joined by Town of Prescott Balley Information Technology Director Casey Danner.
Even injured Deputy Michael Lewis of the Yavapai County Sheriff’s Office joined in, taking the torch from Prescott Police officer Brandon Gerlach in Skull Valley before riding 23 miles to Yarnell. The torch was then passed on to Chris Allard, a trooper with the Arizona Department of Public Safety.
The Arizona Special Olympics were a huge success over the weekend, bringing together hundreds of competitors and their cheering fans.

I am a multimedia journalist and proud graduate from the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism & Mass Communication. I am originally from Minnesota, and I love learning about my second home, Arizona, and all of it's awesome communities through my contributions to My Local News! When I was a little girl, I created my own "newspaper" for my neighborhood and spent all my time writing, printing and sending each edition to my loyal subscribers (AKA my family and neighbors!). Now, it's a dream come true to be able to write everyday and have a positive impact on communities through my reporting. In my free time, I love to travel, hike, cook and spend time with my family and friends.
