Officer Ryan Dudley of the Burlingame Police Department carries the Special Olympics torch down Market Street in downtown Osage City on June 2. Dudley was joined by Burlingame Police Chief Jon Shaffer, Shawnee County Department of Corrections officers, Shawnee County Sheriff’s deputies, Topeka Police officers and Kansas Highway Patrol troopers as they passed the torch through Osage County en route to the Special Olympics last weekend in Wichita. Officers ran through Scranton, Burlingame, Osage City and Lyndon to heighten awareness for the torch run and to show support. Torch run T-shirts and hats can be purchased at Burlingame City Hall, with all proceeds benefiting the Special Olympics.
