HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) -

Law enforcement agencies from across the state are once again carrying the torch for the Special Olympics.

The run began Monday in South Haven and will pass through 21 communities with more than 100 agencies participating. The torch will arrive Friday at Keesler Air Force in Biloxi in time for the state games.

Wednesday morning the torch was carried by Petal police officers to Hattiesburg City Hall where they passed it off to officers from Hattiesburg for the 33-mile trip to the Stone County line.

The Hattiesburg Police Department has been a part of the torch run for 15-years, with Petal joining them for the last two.
