On September 14, 2016, the Motorola Solutions Foundation awarded a $40,000 grant to the Law Enforcement Torch Run for Special Olympics to support the LETR Executive Council's training programs and initiatives throughout 2017.
The Motorola Solutions Foundation's Public Safety Grants aim to support safety education and training programs for first responders, their families and the general public in the United States and Canada. The funds provided by the Motorola Solutions Foundation will be used to support regional LETR training conferences, LETR presentations at IACP regional conferences, and the 2017 LETR International Conference in Nashville, Tennessee. All of the concurrent training sessions at this year's LETR Conference are sponsored and presented by Motorola Solutions Foundation as a part of this grant award. The LETR Executive Council and Special Olympics Inc. are appreciative of this strong support from a company that has long championed the cause of law enforcement around the world.
