On Monday, 20 August 2012, members of the LETR Committee travelled to the NSW Police College in Goulburn and presented to the recruits of Class 316 on Torch Run and Special Olympics. As a result, many of the students have signed up to support our Charity. Many thanks to them.
A great initiative put together by the staff of Rose Bay Local Area Command resulted in almost $15,000 being donated to Law Enforcement Torch. The Rose Bay Charity Dinner in recognition of the New South Wales Police Force's 150th Anniversary raised almost $50,000 for 4 very worthy causes, being Youth off the Streets, Police Legacy, Law Enforcement Torch Run and the David Rixon Memorial Fund. Thanks go to all the staff at Rose Bay, with a special mention to Inspector Andrew Sipos and Detective Inspector Damian Henry.
