The Law Enforcement Torch Run (LETR) Kickoff Conference is designed to orient new officers and departments with the LETR as well as inspire experienced officers already involved. The conference provides an opportunity for LETR and SOMT volunteers to network, share, and learn how to improve their local Torch Run programs, which contribute greatly to increasing public awareness and enhancing the lives of Special Olympics Montana athletes.
