Amarillo's finest collected more than $14,000 in "fines" from pedestrians and passers-by at the annual Street Solicitation fundraiser held April 6-7.  About 50 Law Enforcement Torch Run members spent two days on 14 different street corners around town raising donations for the movement.  The torch runners represented Texas DPS, Tulia and the Clements and Neals prison units.  Thank you LETR members and SOTX supporters for making this year's Street Solicitation successful!
