 Albany --  Albany and Dougherty County police officers, along with sheriff's deputies, converged on the Krispy Kreme doughnut shop Friday morning.

Several officers are in a lift, while their comrades raise money for the Law Enforcement Torch Run that supports the Special Olympics.

"All over the state of Georgia, law enforcement is raising money for these Special Olympics, these special athletes. We're trying to raise some money to be able to do this again this year, which we will," said Dougherty County Sheriff   Jamil Saba.

Last year local law officers raised $9,043; their goal this year is $10,000. The fundraiser runs through 6:00 PM Sunday.
