Albany and Dougherty County law enforcement wants you to join them for some doughnuts, to help a good cause.

Friday the 9th annual Cops on Doughnut Shops kicked off at the Krispy Kreme on North Slappey Boulevard. The

top cops like Dougherty County Police Chief Don Cheek and Sheriff Kevin Sproul sampled the doughnuts. Now they are asking you to make a donation for Special Olympics, and get a coupon for free doughnuts.

The money raised is used to send more than $8,000 special Olympians to five state level competitions.

Sheriff Kevin Sproul said  "Getting these talented Olympians to go to Atlanta and all over the state to participate. It's a cause that you can't pass up."

Dougherty County Police Chief Don Cheek said  "It's a great time to get out and mix with the community. Raise money for a super cause. And keep that old myth alive that cops and doughnuts are a natural fit."

Cops and deputies from the Albany Police, Dougherty County Police and Sheriff's Office, and other law enforcement will be at the Albany Krispy Kreme until midnight Friday.

Then from 7AM to midnight Saturday, and from 7AM to 6PM Sunday, raising money for special Olympics.
