DECATUR — Waving from above, posing for pictures and mingling with residents, members of Decatur and Macon County law enforcement raised money for Special Olympics Illinois on Friday during Cop on a Rooftop.

Sheriff's deputies, police officers and Corrections officers took turns standing on the roof of Dunkin' Donuts in Brettwood Village on Decatur's north side. Donations were greeted with smiles, friendly conversation and coupons for a free doughnut.

In a news release, sheriff's Lt. Jamie Belcher said the effort raised $2,399 for Special Olympics Illinois.

"From 5 a.m. until noon, officers from many different law enforcement agencies from all over Decatur and Macon County joined forces to raise money, with all of the money staying right here in Central Illinois," Belcher said in the news release.

"On behalf of all law enforcement in Decatur and Macon County, we want to thank everyone that stopped by Dunkin’ in Decatur today," he added.
