Correctional Training Facility
The Correctional Training Facility (CTF) partnered with Salinas Valley State Prison (SVSP) and other Monterey County law enforcement agencies to carry the torch to promote Special Olympics and raise public awareness through fundraising efforts.
The June 2018 Law Enforcement Torch Run for CTF and SVSP started in South Monterey County and finished in the Salinas downtown area.
The supporting agencies included the Salinas Police Department, Monterey County Sheriff’s Office, Parole and Probations and the Highway Patrol. Correctional Counselors R. Robinson and S. Dunaven were instrumental in coordinating the Torch Run event. Dunaven organized an Inmate Walk-A-Thon and a Tip-A-Cop fundraiser. CTF and SVSP were able to donate over $2,300.
