The Berwyn Police Department raised $5,400 Friday by guarding the roof of Dunkin’ Donuts at Cermak Road and East Avenue. The Cop On a Roof event benefits Special Olympics Illinois. Berwyn Police Chief Jim Ritz said the community turned out in force.
“We had a lot of volunteers, and people were more than happy to contribute,” Ritz said.
The event is part of the annual Law Enforcement Torch Run campaign. More than 130 Dunkin’ Donuts and law enforcement agencies across the state participated in similar events to raise money.
