On May 7, members from across the Salt River Pima-Maricopa Indian Community ran and rode bicycles during the annual Law Enforcement Torch Run for Special Olympics. The run started at Beeline Highway and Shea Boulevard, where members of the Salt River Police Department, Department of Corrections and the SRPMIC received the Special Olympics torch from runners from Fort McDowell. After the 13-mile stretch down Beeline Highway, Salt River passed on the torch to the Mesa Police Department at Beeline Highway and McDowell Road.
