At a Flame of Hope ceremony in fron of the police station, Colorado Springs Police Chief Richard Myers said officers have always played a big role in helping the Special Olympics.
"I just want to give you a heartfelt thank you," Myers told the crowd, "what you're doing is noble, it's appreciated and let's face it - there isn't another segment of society that raises more money every year for special olympics than the law enforcement community that makes a statement right there."
