Last Friday the annual Law Enforcement Torch Run for Special Olympics rolled through Socorro with a dozen runners. Officers from the Socorro Police Department, Socorro County Sheriff’s Department, Magdalena Marshal’s Office and New Mexico State Police, as well as firefighters  from the Socorro Fire Department, ran 10 miles from south of Socorro to the Plaza. The run began in Las Cruces on Wednesday and ended up on Saturday in Albuquerque for the final day of New Mexico’s Special Olympics.
