Tinley Park Police raised nearly $6,000 for Special Olympics during its Cop on Top fundraising event at two Tinley Park Dunkin’ Donuts Friday.
“We certainly surpassed my expectations,” said event organizer Sgt. Bill Devine.
From about 6 a.m. to 1 p.m., police officers climbed on the roofs of the Dunkin’ Donuts locations at 7935 W. 171st St. and 9510 179th St. to participate in the annual fundraiser for Special Olympics Illinois. Playing off of the familiar cops and donuts joke, Devine said about 120 locations participated in the event throughout the state this year.
“All in all it was very successful,” he said.
