Social Media Toolkit

Social media will play a vital role in helping promote our LETR Commemorative Torch Run event on Friday, July 20th.  We want to make sure our Law Enforcement Torch Run family and supporters understand how to best utilize these platforms.  We have created the following items to help you join in the conversation!


LETR Commemorative Run Volunteers


 

Be Part of the Celebration

LETR Volunteers Needed

Law Enforcement officers are needed to assist with the LETR Commemorative Torch Run the morning of Friday, July 20th.  Please note that individuals registered to volunteer will not be able to participate in the Commemorative Torch Run but will still serve a vital role in the 50th Anniversary Celebration.

Volunteer spots for the Commemorative Torch Run are reserved for Law Enforcement Torch Run members only. To register to help, click here.

If you plan on running and would like to register to help during another 50th Anniversary activity or if you are not part of the Law Enforcement Torch Run, click here.

Color Guard Volunteers

We have received multiple questions regarding Color Guard involvement during the 50th Anniversary Celebration.  Unfortunately, we are not in need of additional assistance in this area.
