Special Olympics

Every year, employees from the Hudson Police Department volunteer their time by participating in the "Special Olympics". The New Hampshire Winter Special Olympics are held in Waterville Valley where Hudson Police Officers show their support and enthusiasm for the athletes by cheering and giving out awards. The New Hampshire Summer Special Olympics area games are located at the Alvirne High School. Hudson Police Employees participate in the opening ceremonies and present medals to the Olympians.

Members of the Hudson Police Department also solicit pledges for "Special Olympics" by participating in a "Law Enforcement Torch Run" beginning their run at the Hudson - Londonderry town line to the Hudson - Nashua line (approx. 5.5 miles). Employees also conduct a Special Olympics Fund-raiser by asking local establishments to sell the "New Hampshire Law Enforcement Torch mobiles. Look for the "Torch" in your local store!
