Law Enforcement Torch Run officers command you to report to Cops on Top, a deliciously fun fundraiser benefiting Special Olympics Texas (SOTX) athletes in Laredo. 

On April 26, a few of Laredo's finest will camp out on the roof of Krispy Kreme Doughnuts, located at 6627 San Dario Avenue. They won't be staking out the joint; they'll be rounding up donations for local SOTX competitors.

You can pay your "fine" (donation) from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. on Friday.  Customers who drop off a donation will get a sweet treat in return, ranging from one free donut to a dozen Original Glazed donuts a month for a year, depending on the contribution.  Individuals or businesses donating more than $1,000 during "Cops on Top" weekend will earn a Krispy Kreme party.

We are looking forward to when we can have events again. I know so many athletes now, if I miss someone I’d be in trouble. I miss everyone: athletes, officers, coaches, and staff who help coordinate. I’ve been keeping up with some athletes online, it is good to still be able to interact with them virtually", said Senior Deputy Michelle Walter.
