Albany - You've heard all the jokes about cops and donuts. Well, police say if you can't fight 'em, join 'em. 

The "Cops on Donut Shops" fundraiser kicked off Friday. Dougherty County Police and Sheriff's Officers, along with APD, will sit on top of the Krispy Kreme shop over the weekend to raise money for Special Olympics. Even the departments' head honchos took a turn.

Chief Don Cheek says, "I just can't say enough about the benefit that the kids and young people that engage in the program. It's a great community involvement, a great way to support our youth and our communities."

Kristin Caso, with Special Olympics says, "There are 22,000 athletes in this state, competing in special Olympics and it does take money to send them to competitions."

Organizers hope to raise at least $5,000 this year, and you can help with that. If you stop by and donate money, as little as a buck, you'll get a free donut. The event runs through Sunday afternoon.
