Cop on Top - Friday, May 29
Police officers from throughout the state will once again stake out Dunkin’ Donuts rooftops to heighten awareness and raise donations for the Law Enforcement Torch Run® to benefit Special Olympics Illinois.
This year's event will be held TODAY until 1 PM
. Members of the Palatine Police Department will be sitting on top of the roofs of the Dunkin' Donuts at 801 E. Dundee Road (Rand/Dundee) and at our NEW location at 231 W. Northwest Highway (Smith Street/Northwest Highway).
More than $300,000 was raised during last year's record-breaking Cop on Rooftop event at 114 locations! We raised over $2,700 last year!
Everyone who visits a Cop on Rooftop store and makes a donation to the Torch Run will receive a free donut. People who donate at least $10 will also receive a Law Enforcement Torch Run® travel mug and coupon for free coffee.
So stop on by and say hi while donating for a great cause and receive your free donut!

Fire Public Education Videos - School Talks
Each year, Palatine firefighters visit every Palatine grade school. Based on grade level, we bring fire safety or medical emergency information to each classroom. During each visit we review information from prior visits and introduce new information. This information has been added to the Fire Department web page
as a tool for you. Please watch the link or links provided and discuss them with your child. Use this information as a guide to help discuss situations specific to your house or family. Click here if you would like to view our video vault
