The Idaho Department of Correction is joining the “Law Enforcement Army” that supports Special Olympics Idaho.

The non-profit organization provides training and athletic competition to more than 2,500 children and adults with intellectual disabilities in Idaho.

The director of IDOC, Kevin Kempf, had this to say about the new partnership:

“We are honored, humbled, and excited to become partners with the Special Olympics of Idaho. They contacted our agency and expressed an interest in having us join their Law Enforcement Army that helps raise awareness, resources, and funds for the Athletes that participate in Special Olympics across Idaho. In the near future we will be asking for volunteers for both uniform and non-uniform staff to participate in events like "Tip-a-Cop, LE Torch Run, and the various other activities that benefit these amazing athletes."
