"It was a shocker at first but once we got to running it was okay," OCSO Deputy Jeremiah Dowdy said.

In addition to the torch run, local officers have raised funds with "Tip a Cop" events, during which officers work as waiting staff at local restaurants and earn tips for Special Olympics Okaloosa County, Gay said.  

"It's pretty cool" to see officers attract attention to the Special Olympics and the athletes involved, Special Olympian Jacob Luttrell said.

Theresa Mouer, Okaloosa County Special Olympics assistant director, said she appreciates all the support.  

"Both (OCSO) Sheriff Larry Ashley and (Crestview Police Chief) Tony Taylor have always been behind us," she said.
