APD Chief Livingstone (center) cheers the troops
If your mother ever gave you the sound advice, "Don't run from the law..." why not make mom really proud and run WITH the law. All for a great cause. Special Olympics.
The Amherst Police Department will once again sponsor and participate--and invites us civilians to join them--in the Law Enforcement Torch Run relay, a three mile jaunt from APD headquaters in downtown Amherst to the UMass Southwest Towers on Saturday, August 11 starting at 7:10 PM . It only cost $15 and the t-shirts alone are worth the price (not to mention the sterling company).

Meanwhile Amherst Fire Department Local 1764 took to the roads this morning under threatening skies for the 6th annual Motorcycle Muscular Dystrophy Association Poker Ride.
Goes to show Amherst is blessed with public safety personnel who go above and beyond the call of duty.
