Fourth Annual IACP Torch Run Photo Contest

udges selected these winning photographs from a pool of more than 225 images submitted by almost 50 Torch Run programs from all over the world. Judges from the IACP and Special Olympics International met in fall 2004 to review the entries at IACP headquarters in Alexandria, Virginia. The following judges represented Special Olympics International:

  • Cheri DeQuattro

  • Drake Turrentine, head counsel

  • Bobby Jones, Special Olympics athlete

  • Kester Edwards, Special Olympics athlete

  • The following judges represented the IACP:

  • Dan Rosenblatt, executive director

  • Nancy Kolb, Volunteers in Police Service deputy project director

  • Paul Santiago, international affairs director

  • Elisa Cohen, marketing manager

Each of the winning programs will receive a copy of their winning images in poster size for their own display. These images were also on display at the 111th Annual IACP Conference in Los Angeles, and the 2004 International Law Enforcement Torch Run Conference in Arlington, Virginia. The top photos are also scheduled for publication in both the Police Chief and Spirit magazines.

Each year this contest is a reminder of the immeasurable benefits this program offers to both the participating officers and the community they serve. Thank you to all the agencies that participated this year-the choices were difficult to make.

In 2003 this international initiative raised more than $20 million for Special Olympics. More than 85,000 law enforcement officers around the world carried the Flame of Hope across 35 nations, raising awareness and funds for Special Olympics. ■
