Find Wheaton Police Officers This Friday at “Cop on Rooftop” Event


For the 15th year in a row, law enforcement officers throughout Illinois will stake out Dunkin’ Donuts rooftops to support Special Olympics Illinois. Wheaton Police Officers will be on-site at Wheaton Dunkin’ Donuts located at 956 E. Roosevelt Road (near Roosevelt and President) from 5 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Officers hope to top last year’s donation total of $672,000 as they head to 274 Dunkin’ Donuts rooftops to raise awareness and donations for the Law Enforcement Torch Run to benefit Special Olympics Illinois.

Special Olympics athletes and their families and representatives from Chicago’s major sports teams are among the special guests who will join police officers and rise to the occasion to show their support.

In honor of the Special Olympics athletes and police officers participating in the rooftop event, Dunkin’ Donuts will donate $15,000 to the Illinois Law Enforcement Torch Run.

In addition, each guest who visits a Cop on a Rooftop location that day and makes a donation to the Torch Run will receive a free donut coupon. Other items, such as Torch Run T-shirts and raffle tickets, will be available for various donation amounts.
