To raise money for Special Olympics, Hagar and other Albany and Dougherty County Police and Dougherty County Sheriff's Deputies will take turns sitting on the roof of Krispy Kreme. Dougherty County Police Lt. Jason Hagar said "I would like to ask the residents in Dougherty County, Albany,and all the local areas, to come by and show their support for Special Olympics. Maybe get a doughnut or two, too."

 Lt. Hagar will spend 60 straight hours on the Krispy Kreme roof, April First through Third, leading the "Cops on Doughnuts" fund raiser.

Other officers will sit on the roof from six in the morning, till six at night. They hope you will drive by, and donate to Special Olympics.
