The Law Enforcement Torch Run encompasses a variety of innovative fundraising platforms to include several signature events such as the Fun Run with the Cops and Polar Plunge series, in addition to Tip-A-Cop.

Fun Run with the Cops

From donut eating contests to kids’ obstacle courses, Run with the Cops is jam-packed full of fun for the entire family. The events feature interactive law enforcement vehicle displays where participants and spectators can try on SWAT gear, meet K9 officers, tour a mobile command center and event sit in an armored vehicle.  Plus, officers may make you pass a boot camp warm-up session before you take off along the 5K route.
