News Release: Midway Police Department
Midway, Fla. -- If you travel through the city of Midway throughout the month of March, you may see some male officers growing beards or goatees and some female officers wearing the nail color of their choice. You may also see some officers wearing plain clothes instead of wearing their normal uniform, all for a charitable cause.
The Midway Police Department will be breaking from their normal uniform all in an effort to help raise monies for the Special Olympics. As part of the fundraiser, participating officers will each donate $10.00 per week in exchange for being allowed to break from the routine uniform policy. 100% of the monies collected at the end of the month will be donated to the Special Olympics.
Also, The Midway Police Department wants to remind all citizens and fellow law enforcement colleagues of the upcoming Law Enforcement Torch Run for the 2014 USA Special Olympics Games will include many law enforcement representatives and Special Olympics athletes from all 50 states, taking part in a five-day, multi-state Torch Run. The run in Gadsden County will be held on April 10, 2014, from 9AM-12PM, beginning at the old women’s prison and ending at the Burger King, all in Quincy.
