Officers from area police departments headed to their local Dunkin Donuts locations May 20 on a stakeout for Special Olympics Illinois.
The Bolingbrook and Romeoville police department were among more than 150 police departments across the state that participated in the 14th annual Dunkin’ Donuts Cop on Rooftop event.
Hundreds of law enforcement officers from throughout Illinois took to more than 230 Dunkin’ Donuts rooftops May 20 to raise awareness and donations for the Special Olympics Illinois Law Enforcement Torch Run.
In Bolingbrook, 20 officers raised approximately $2,500 to support the cause. The event is part of the SOI Law Enforcement Torch Run, and raises funds for SOI and its athletes.
Everyone who visited a Cop on Rooftop location and made a donation to the Torch Run received a free donut. People who donated at least $10 also received a Law Enforcement Torch Run Travel Mug and coupon for free coffee.
In 2015, 195 Dunkin’ Donuts locations participated in the event and raised more than $542,000. Since beginning in 2003, almost $2.3 million has been raised during the Cop on Rooftop fundraiser.
