Cops do more than just eat at Krispy Kreme this weekend

ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Law enforcement agencies are putting a twist to a police stereotype and raising money for the Special Olympics as they do it. This is the fifth year they are participating in the Cops on Doughnut Shops fundraiser.

It's a common joke, police officers loving their doughnuts. But Dougherty County Police, Albany Police and Dougherty County Sheriff deputies hope the public helps them turn their favorite sweet into funds for special athletes.

"It takes a whole lot, and we need all the money we can get because they got to house them. They got to feed them. And that takes a whole lot of money," said Track and Field Athlete, Billy Griner Jr.

Last year the Albany Cops on Doughnut Shops effort brought in $13,000. Their goal this year is $20,000. And you can help them reach it by donating to officers at the Slappey Krispy Kreme shop Saturday and Sunday.
