Law Enforcement Supports Special Olympics

By  | 

Local law enforcement was on the move Tuesday to support the Special Olympics.

Parkersburg, Vienna and State Police, along with State Corrections officers; did their part in carrying the torch across West Virginia.

Officers ran the torch from the south-side Hardees to the one in Vienna.

So far, they've raised more than half a million dollars for this year's summer games.

"That's what police officers do. We try to support the community. They support us. We all work together to make things happen. I think it's very important to get our youth involved," Matt Eichhorn, a Parkersburg Police officer, said.

The Special Olympics is set for this weekend in Charleston.
