Despite the heat, some police officers spent part of Tuesday morning on the roof of Dunkin' Donuts. It's all part of the annual Cops on Top of Donut Shops to raise money for the Special Olympics Torch Run.
At the DD on the corner of Monroe Avenue and Alexander in Rochester, officers encouraged customers to donate to the program that gets law enforcement personnel involved
with the Special Olympics community.
Officers from Rochester, Greece, Irondequoit and Monroe County Sheriff's deputies collected money at six area Dunkin' Donuts. In return for a donation, customers got a free cup of coffee.
"We have a little competition going on between the police agencies as far as who can do the best job so we have some loud mouths on top of Dunkin Donuts to help us out," said Lt. John Prewasnicak of the Rochester Police Department.
Last year, $4,000 was raised at two locations, so the hope is to collect about $10,000 this year.
