February 9, 2024 — The Canyon County Sheriff’s Office (CCSO) unveiled a new patrol vehicle today to honor Special Olympics Idaho and the Law Enforcement Torch Run (LETR) for Special Olympics. The patrol car — the first of its kind in the State of Idaho — debuted on February 9, 2024, at the CCSO Tip-A-Cop fundraiser for Special Olympics Idaho at Texas Roadhouse in Nampa.

“This vehicle is a tribute to the amazing athletes of Special Olympics Idaho and honors the spirit of determination, resilience, and unity that defines the Special Olympics community,” said Sheriff Kieran Donahue. “As it patrols our streets, it carries with it the flame of hope and serves as a testament to the athletes who give their all on the field. CCSO is honored to partner with Special Olympics Idaho to help raise awareness and ongoing support for an organization that means so much to so many.”

“We’re honored to partner with the Canyon County Sheriff’s Office on this exciting campaign,” added Kristi Kraft, CEO of Special Olympics Idaho. “The new Law Enforcement Torch Run patrol car represents our joint effort to promote unity and inclusion. It’s a testament to the positive impact we can achieve when we collaborate. Let’s use this opportunity to celebrate diversity and inclusion to support one another.”

The Canyon County Sheriff’s Office would like to thank The Sign Shoppe of Caldwell for its help in designing the Special Olympics Idaho patrol vehicle.
