The University of Maryland police could be found where many cops across the country could be found this weekend – on top of a donut shop.
Yes, on the rooftop.
It was part of a nationwide fundraiser for the Special Olympics, and the Dunkin’ Donuts in College Park was one of eight participating locations in Maryland. The UMd. Department of Public Safety officers raised $5,450, surpassing their goal by $450.
From 6 a.m. Saturday morning until noon Sunday, three officers from the department camped out on top of Dunkin’ Donuts, hollering on bullhorns and encouraging customers to donate. A $5 donation earned customers a free coffee.
