MADISON (WKOW) -- Police officials across the country are uniting Friday to support the Special Olympics.
"Cop on a Rooftop" takes police to new heights in order to benefit the charity.
Madison law enforcement scaled the walls of the Dunkin' Donuts store on Gammon Road.
The money raised goes toward the Wisconsin Law Enforcement Torch Run, which raised over $2.5 million last year, making it one of the highest grossing programs in the world.
"It's a cause that I think really resonates with people that work in our field, so people have just kept doing it every year and it's a really great partnership that we have," says Capt. Victor Wahl, of Madison Police Department.
Dunkin' Donuts is donating $5,000 to the Torch Run for the officers' spending time on the roof to spread the word.
Each Dunkin' Donuts visitor who made a donation to the run received a free beverage.
This is the second year that Wisconsin police officers have participated.
