Special Olympics Program

Every year, Officers from this department volunteer their time by participating in the " Special Olympic Torch Run". Officers begin their run at the Nashua-Merrimack line and run through the town to the Merrimack-Bedford line. Some of the officers continue with the run to the check point destination in Manchester. Officers participate by running, riding bicycles or rollerblading, all in support of those less fortunate.

The Merrimack Police Department also sends officers to the New Hampshire Special Olympics opening ceremonies. Police departments from around the state participate in the opening ceremony parade by having marked police vehicles and motorcycles lead these athletes into the stadium at the University of New Hampshire's campus in Durham.
