Law enforcement use donuts to raise money for worthy cause

Albany- It's not an April fools joke. Police nationwide are taking to the roofs of Krispy Kreme Donut shops to raise money for a worthy cause.

Dougherty County Police Lt. Jason Hager plans on spending the entire weekend on top of Albany's Krispy Kreme. Hager and other volunteers will wave at motorists and ask for donations for The law enforcement torch run for special Olympics.

Krispy Kreme is a national sponsor for the event. That may lead to a little teasing, but the cops say it's worth it.

"We've been asked several times about the joke about police officers and donut shops and you know we take it pretty good. If it will help us raise money for a worthy cause, we'll laugh with them," said Lt. Jason Hager.

This is the first time for the event in Albany event. They hope to raise at least five-thousand dollars by six o'clock Sunday.
