BOLINGBROOK – Bolingbrook police took to the rooftop of the Bolingbrook Dunkin' Donuts on Friday and raised more than $2,200 for Special Olympics Illinois.

Officers staked out the rooftop of the store on Bolingbrook Drive as part of the Cop on Rooftop event held throughout the state.

The local event was organized by Sgt. Kristopher Schrubbe, Officer Vince Radaker, Officer Brigitte Balcer and Telecommunication Supervisor Mary Jo Lewandowski. Roughly 20 other Bolingbrook officers participated as well, as store patrons donated money for free coffee, T-shirts and more.
