NSWPF CoP Karen Webb presented a $60,000 cheque to Tony Moore, Chairman of the Special Olympics NSW. In two years, officers from across the state, including recruits at the NSWPF Academy in Goulburn, have donated almost $200,000 to support this initiative. The funds raised will help send a team of athletes to the National Games in Launceston in October. Photo credit: NSWPF.

A request to “take a look at a file” was the starting point for a group of now-retired police officers to begin one of the NSWPF’s largest community engagement initiatives. 
Among the group is former Detective Inspector Alan Keane, who retired from NSW Police in 2005 after 25 years of service. He is currently the President of the Law Enforcement Torch Run NSW - one of many officers who continue to be a part of LETR after they hung up the badge.  
LETR is a worldwide police charity that operates the largest and most active community engagement initiative in global policing today. In Australia, the program funds much of the week-to-week activities of the local Special Olympics clubs in the community – allowing people living with an intellectual disability to get involved in sports and organised competition. This year is the 20th anniversary of the LETR in NSW.
