Special Olympics Annual Torch Run
On June 12, 2018, the men and women of the Seaside Police Department participated in the Annual Special Olympics Torch Run. The purpose of the torch run is to raise awareness about the Special Olympics and the athletes that participate. The torch is handed to several participating law enforcement agencies that carry it through many cities within the County of Monterey.
Seaside Police Department also participated in the annual Tip-A-Cop, held at Chili's Restaurant, located at 1349 Canyon Del Rey Boulevard. Members of the department volunteered their time busing tables, refilling drink orders and other miscellaneous serving duties. They worked for "tips" which all went towards the Special Olympic athletes.
