ALBANY, GA (WALB) - You'll see lots of cops hanging around the Krispy Kreme Doughnut Shop on North Slappey, but they are not eating, they are raising dough for Special Olympics Georgia.  

This is the fifth annual Cops on Doughnut Shops. Albany and Dougherty County Police and Dougherty County Sheriff's Deputies will spend three days at the Krispy Kreme, collecting donations to sponsor the special Olympic athletes. 

"You want to try to help them get to these Olympics so it won't cost them any money out of their pocket. It's just something about the human spirit that comes out of us, to want to get out and work with these kids and these adults," said Dougherty County Sheriff Kevin Sproul.

Last year the Albany Cops on Doughnut Shops raised $13,000. Their goal this year is $20,000. The Cops will be at the Slappey Krispy Kreme Friday, Saturday, and Sunday.
