Wednesday marks the Annual Law Enforcement Torch Run for Special Olympics. A relay run will traverse through the communities of Essex County, and will finish on the waterfront in Windsor at the Civic Terrace.

Windsor Police  first participated in the Law Enforcement Torch Run in 1986 and has continued the annual spring tradition every year since.
