Public Safety Upcoming Events

Special Olympics Northern California 

Special Olympics Northern California provides athletic opportunities to children and adults with intellectual disabilities, instilling the confidence they need to succeed in life. The Law Enforcement Torch Run raises significant funds to support these efforts.



Sunnyvale Public Safety and Special Olympics Athlete of the Month, Thomas Wolk:



Thomas Wolk is a 2007 Wilcox high School graduate and a 2013 Taft College graduate. Thomas works as a courtesy clerk at Safeway and lives in San Jose with his roommate Robert. He has participated in Special Olympics for about six years. Thomas' top five sports are softball, floor hockey, bowling (120), basketball and track (4 x 100 relay, 200M and shotput).
