Published at 11:06 a.m. on April 17, 2014 | Modified at 11:06 a.m. on April 17, 2014

For the last 20 plus years, the Sarasota Police Department has been participating in the Law Enforcement Torch Run for Special Olympics. This year our team took to the streets of Sarasota again! Officers with the Sarasota Police Department joined more than 300 Florida law enforcement agencies in the state-wide torch run to benefit the athletes of Special Olympics Florida. More than 5,000 officers carry the torch on a 1,500-mile relay throughout Florida yearly. The Sarasota Police Department received the Torch from the Sarasota County Sheriff's Office in the parking lot of Paradise Publix at 3825 South Osprey Avenue on Thursday, April 17, 2014. Members of the Sarasota Police Department ran the torch into the City of Sarasota on a route that took the torch north on U.S. 41, right on Osprey Avenue and left on Main Street and ending at Five Points Park at the intersection of Main Street and Pineapple Avenue.
