Dozens of Southern California police officers will be hanging out at doughnut shops on Friday morning, but they won’t be inside — they’ll be on the roof.

Officers from more than 40 law enforcement agencies across Southern California will be camping out on the rooftops of participating Dunkin’ locations from 6 to 10 a.m. for the second annual Cop on a Rooftop event benefiting Special Olympics Southern California.

Guests who visit participating locations can make a donation to Special Olympics, and in return, they’ll receive a coupon for one free medium hot or iced coffee.

“This event is a lighthearted yet influential way to show our appreciation for the effort our local Special Olympics organization puts into what they do, while also highlighting the dedication and bravery of the officers who keep our communities safe on a daily basis,” San Fernando Police Department Sgt. Irwin Rosenberg said.

People who want to support the cause but can’t make it to a Dunkin’ location can also donate online at

“With Dunkin’ and law enforcement as our teammates, we’ll be able to transform even more people with intellectual disabilities through sports, wellness and leadership programs,” said Bill Shumard, SOSC’s CEO.
