On Friday, June 8th more than 3,000 officers took the streets of their local communities on one of 26 separate routes to help carry the “Flame of Hope” to the Special Olympics New Jersey Summer Games and Lakewood was one of those routes. A great turn out in attendance from the community, along with our PBA & SOA displayed an amazing support through our town carrying the “Flame of Hope”, the culmination of the run is the lighting of the Special Olympics New Jersey cauldron at the opening Ceremony to officially open the 2018 Summer Games.
