Thanks for Your Support!

The Wheaton Police Department extends a big thank you to all of the community members who came out to support the Cop on a Rooftop event last Friday. Thanks to your support, the Wheaton Police Department was able to raise more than $3,200 for Special Olympics Illinois. The Wheaton Police Department participated along with police departments across the state in this annual event, which places police officers on the rooftops of Dunkin’ Donuts locations and accepts donations for Special Olympics Illinois.
