Police officers will try to promote the Special Olympics of Iowa Thursday. Around 20 officers from Quad Cities police departments will run through Bettendorf and Davenport during the annual Torch Run.

The worldwide Law Enforcement Torch Run began in 1981 in Wichita, Kansas, and each year, more that 97,000 officers participate.

Fight Crime: Invest in Kids

Improving education in Iowa will reduce crime. That was the message today (3/10) from the Bettendorf School District and Police Department, during a news conference at Paul Norton Elementary School. Police Chief Phil Redington says the link between education and crime may be stronger than people realize. 

This link was studied in a report released today by the group "Fight Crime: Invest in Kids." It says nation-wide, 7 out of 10 prison inmates have not graduated from high school. And Redington says that means police departments and parents need to support local schools.

Local residents, and people all over the country, are reporting a new version of an old scam. Since the beginning of the year, the Bettendorf Police Department has been receiving at least a couple of calls per week from residents who've received suspicious phone calls from someone claiming to be from the Internal Revenue Service.
