Officers carry Flame of Hope through Milton.

A team of Milton's finest, from left, Officer Brian Kiel with K-9 DaSilva, Sgt. Romney Scott, Police Chief Deborah Harrell and Community Officer Andrew Phillips, participated May 19 in the Special Olympics of Georgia's Law Enforcement Torch Run.

The officers carried the Flame of Hope from Milton City Hall on Deerfield Parkway to the Forsyth County line, where waiting Johns Creek police officers made the hand off. The 11-day relay will end May 21, when the torch is carried from the state capitol to Emory University, site of the Summer Games.

Previously, the Milton Police Department participated in and raised money for "Tip a Cop" Feb. 9 at Dickey's Barbecue, the "Polar Plunge" Feb. 20 at Lake Lanier Islands and "Cuffed for a Cause" April 10 at Walmart. To date, the department has raised more than $4,000 through in-person and online donations.
