Members of the Verona Police Department participated in the  Law Enforcement Torch Run for the Special Olympics last Thursday. In order to raise funds and awareness for the Special Olympics, which was held at The College of New Jersey last weekend, New Jersey police officers ran a continuous course throughout the state. Verona Police picked up the torch, and their leg of the race, from West Orange police officers, who ran down Pleasant Valley Way to Bloomfield Avenue in Verona. The VPD leg ended at Montclair Kimberley Academy’s Upper School field on Bloomfield Avenue in Montclair, where the torch was passed on to Montclair police officers.
