Proceeds Benefit:

The event, a collaboration between COTC and the Licking County Sheriff’s Office (LCSO), will honor law enforcement personnel as they prepare for National Police Week, May 11-17. Proceeds from the Blue Line Twilight Run will benefit COTC’s Officer Thomas W. Cottrell, Jr. Award for Character and Dedication to Public Service and the LCSO’s Stuff the Backpack fund. 

  • COTC’s Officer Thomas W. Cottrell, Jr. Award for Character and Dedication to Public Service is presented by the Cottrell family in memory of Officer Thomas W. Cottrell, Jr., who was senselessly killed in the line of duty while working in the Knox County town of Danville in January 2016. Cottrell was born in Newark and graduated from COTC's basic police academy in 2002. He served in law enforcement for more than 14 years. Established by Cottrell's mother, Melissa Osborn, and sister, Nicole Kohlmier, the award is presented at each COTC Peace Officer Basic Training (POBT) graduation ceremony during the academic year. The $1,000 award assists the recipient with equipment purchases and other expenses associated with beginning a career in law enforcement. Endowing the fund will allow for three $1,000 awards annually from the endowment's interest, leaving the fund's principal untouched so the award can exist in perpetuity.

  • Stuff the Backpack is a program created by the LCSO to help underserved school-age children in Licking County schools served by the LCSO prepare for the new school year. Uniformed officers shop for school supplies with an identified child and their family, creating positive relationships with law enforcement in a fun-filled, encouraging atmosphere.

Sponsored by Central Ohio Technical College and the Licking County Sheriff's Department
