JANESVILLE—Cops will be stationed on the roofs of two Janesville Dunkin Donuts stores Friday morning as part of a Special Olympics fundraiser.

The Cop on a Rooftop event will be from 6 to 11 a.m. at the Janesville Dunkin Donuts Stores at 1905 Center Ave. and 2121 Milton Ave., according to a Rock County Sheriff's Office news release.

Sheriff's office personnel and other local law enforcement officers will be on the roofs to accept donations for Special Olympics of Wisconsin athletes.

For each donation, Dunkin Donuts will give a coupon for a free medium hot or iced coffee. Dunkin Donuts will donate $5,000 to Special Olympics.

This is the second year the sheriff's office has participated in this event. Last year's event raised $3,000, the highest total in the southeast region.
