Maryland State Police to Host Tours, Ride-Alongs to Special Olympics Athletes

PIKESVILLE, Md.– Maryland State Police say they are partnering with Special Olympics Maryland to provide special needs athletes with barrack tours and ride-alongs.

This partnership, “Champions on Patrol," aims to unite two communities and create a better understanding of the special needs community, according to police.

Athletes who are interested in taking a tour of the barrack facilities or riding on a patrol should contact their county coordinator, police said. A local barrack will then make the arrangements.

Police said they can also make arrangements for a guardian to join the athlete if he or she needs assistance or feels more comfortable. Police will not place the athlete in any compromising or dangerous situation.

Maryland State Police also partner with Special Olympics Maryland in its Maryland State Police Polar Bear Plunge, Maryland Law Enforcement Torch Run, and the Maryland State Police and Natural Resources Police Deep Creek Dunk.
