Law enforcement officers will stake out Dunkin’ Donuts across Missouri starting at 5 a.m. Friday to raise awareness and donations for the Missouri Law Enforcement Torch Run.
KANSAS CITY, Mo. - Cops and donuts.
Old joke, right?
Well, Friday, at Dunkin’ Donuts around town, like the one in the Northland near 95th and Oak, it’s no laughing matter…but it is a lot of fun!
It’s called Cop on the Roof or Cop on Top and it’s all designed to raise money for Special Olympics.
Capt. Cindy Cotterman, KCPD, says that the partnership between Special Olympics and police departments is a long time, loving commitment.
The money raised today, like the five thousand they hope to make at the Northland Dunkin’ Donuts, will go to provide medical services for the athletes as well as funding part of the competitions.
The police are everywhere on this donut day: at the drive-through window, manning the donation bucket and, of course, hanging out on the roof.
Oh, and a couple of undercover cops out near the street…be careful, you could get clocked for speeding by a dancing donut and cavorting cup of coffee.
For the police departments and the Special Olympics this is a true case of heroes helping heroes.
