There were a lot of Milwaukee police officers hanging out at donut shops Friday. 
No, they weren't getting a snack. They were raising money for Special Olympics.
"I saw the car out there and I thought maybe someone is robbing the place. I had no idea," Janice Malnory said.
This is all part of the donut shops annual event called Cops on a Roof. 
"A lot of times we're in the media and it's not for a good reason, but this is something where we can give back to our community and Special Olympics," said Thomas Struck with the Milwaukee Police Department.
Milwaukee police participate in this event every year.
At the Dunkin Donuts on Layton Avenue, three officers took turns up on the roof. But for officer Struck, raising cash for Special Olympics is near to his heart.
"I was hospitalized a couple of years ago, and one of the athletes came and gave me one of his gold medals. It's a great relationship. I have a great relationship with a number of athletes and we continue to build on that," he said.
In return for the police officers “doing time” on top of the donut shop, people who made a donation got a free coffee.
Forty-six Dunkin Donut shops throughout the state participated in the fundraiser.
