A very good initiative to engage uniformed officers to participate in such events of which not only improves their fitness but also it exemplifies the spirit of competitiveness to encourage the special olympiads to excel and be motivated.

Kudos to the Anne Arundel police officers for shedding some light on the Special Olympics. We tend to forget that the Special Olympics and the disabled athletes who have pushed boundaries to achieve sporting excellence.
