Several area police departments will stake out Dunkin' Donuts rooftops Friday to raise money for Special Olympics.

Batavia and Geneva police officers will be on hand at the Batavia Dunkin' Donuts, 2002 W. Wilson St., to raise awareness and donations for the Law Enforcement Torch Run to benefit Special Olympics. Batavia Police Chief Gary Schira and Geneva Police Chief Steve Mexin will be on the store's rooftop between 8:30 and 9:30 a.m.

Members of the St. Charles Police Department will be at the Dunkin' Donuts store at 1711 W. Main St., St. Charles, from 6 a.m. to 2 p.m. St. Charles Interim Police Chief Steve Huffman will be perched atop the roof at Dunkin' Donuts while playing his guitar.

The North Aurora Police Department will be at the Dunkin' Donuts store at 407 South Lincolnway, North Aurora, from 6 to 11 a.m.

Each guest who visits a Cop on a Rooftop location that day and makes a donation to the Torch Run will receive a free doughnut coupon. Guests donating at least $10 will receive a Law Enforcement Torch Run travel mug (while supplies last) and a coupon for free medium coffee.

Dunkin’ Donuts also is donating $15,000 to the Torch Run fund. The Illinois Law Enforcement Torch Run has raised more than $31 million over 28 years while increasing awareness of Special Olympics Illinois athletes and their accomplishments.
