On January 23, 2019, in Livermore, California in front of a crowd of law enforcement officers from around the state, the Santa Clara Police Department received the #1 Fundraising Agency Award for the Law Enforcement Torch Run for Special Olympics Northern California. 

Officers and personnel from the Santa Clara Police Department raised over $69,655 in 2018 for the intellectually disabled athletes of Special Olympics.  The officers raised the funds by participating in the Torch Run, doing Tip-A-Cops at local restaurants, holding a poker tournament, doing polar plunges, and conducting T-shirt sales.
