COPS ON ROOFTOPS: The Cops on Rooftops program consists of officers greeting customers at the door and, (for the daring), standing on the roof of the California, Maryland Dunkin Donuts.

There will be Sheriff's Office vehicles, a silent auction, entertainment for kids and of course DONUTS and COFFEE. Volunteers, officer's and Special Olympics athletes will be on-site to greet customers both inside and outside the store.

This is a very worthwhile and fun event that will only take a few hours of your Saturday or Sunday morning. If you are interested in assisting please email or contact me directly.
