Moline Police help good cause and show another side of the department

Moline Police teamed up with Dunkin Donuts to help raise money for the Special Olympics.

Police officers stood outside the Moline Dunkin Donuts on Avenue of the Cities Friday, May 20, 2014 asking for donations and giving coupons for a free donut during their annual Special Olympics Torch Run Event.

Officers that helped with the event said it was a great way to get to know their community.

“Besides coming out and trying to raise money for the Special Olympics, you know, it shows another side of the police department, besides, you know, people getting arrested and going to jail,” said Jeremy Weeks with the Moline Police Department.

Weeks said the event brought in nearly $1,250.

    I had no idea about this previously. I had gone to DD this morning and noticed the officer standing out there. Asked him what it was all about, and donated. Being someone who is of special needs, it’s really nice to see them doing this. Bravo!
