On November 17, 2018 the 66th ROC of the MTPC Plymouth Police Academy was honored to run with the State Police of the Foxboro barracks. Together, we carried the Special Olympic torch down Route 1 and into Gillette Stadium; to begin the opening ceremony of the flag football and cheerleading games.

The Mission Statement of the Special Olympics notes the desire to provide children and adults with intellectual disabilities a platform that fosters opportunity, physical fitness and inclusion. The Special Olympics present its athletes with experiences to share courage and joy with new and old friends, as well as family.

As recruit officers, it was a privilege to be part of an event with such a profound significance. Prior to beginning our journey with the torch, we were told that often the athletes are more excited to meet police officers than they are to meet the Patriots. For myself and other members of the 66th ROC, that was a humbling statement that will remain with us throughout our career.
