  • Video: Third Lake Cop on Rooftop

 
 

When the Lake County Tactical Response Team truck rolls in, there's a big job to be done -- and that's just what was needed Friday morning in Third Lake.

About 20 members of the Lake County sheriff's office converged on the Third Lake Dunkin' Donuts to raise money for the Law Enforcement Torch Run to benefit Special Olympics Illinois.

Deputies took turns waving from atop their truck to passers-by on Route 45 during the annual Cop on Rooftop event. Sheriff Mark Curran, Undersheriff Ray Rose, deputies, reserve deputies and explorers staked out the store to support the cause.

"The Lake County Sheriff's Office has participated and participates every year in various fundraising events for Special Olympics Illinois," Deputy Dave McNichol said. "Every deputy you see out here is doing it on their own time, which means they're volunteering their time to raise money and awareness for Special Olympics Illinois."

Law enforcement officials collected donations at 174 Dunkin' Donuts statewide on Friday, including various locations throughout Lake County.

Every person who donated received a free donut. Donations of $10 or more received a Law Enforcement Torch Run travel mug and a coupon for a free coffee.
