TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTHI) - Indiana State Police troopers put on different uniforms Saturday.
News 10 caught them hitting the court with some very special people. It was part of the Happiness Bag's annual State Trooper Fun Game.
Happiness Bag is an educational and recreational center for people with disabilities.
Troopers teamed up to play against the Happiness Bag basketball teams. They say they are glad to join in on the fun.
Indiana State Police Sergeant Matt Ames says, "A lot of time people just think of us, the guys out here, working up and down the road giving people tickets and taking them to jail. This is a great opportunity just to give back to the community and be able to correspond with people and just let them know that we are out to support them anyway we can."
Organizers say this is just one of the events helping the teams gear up for the Special Olympics.
