Cops and Jocks

cops and jocks

In 2006, the Wyoming FOP created the “Cops and Jocks” program in an effort to further promote the Law Enforcement Torch Run, and in turn support Special Olympics Wyoming. This program proved to be a very successful fund raising mechanism and an even better public relations project. The program operates similar to the firefighter “Fill the Boot” program with MDA. The Wyoming FOP encourages law enforcement agencies throughout Wyoming to consider adopting some form of the “Cops and Jocks” initiative in their areas.

Cop on Top

Cops on top logo Website

A Cops-on-Top – a.k.a. Building Sit – is a unique and successful fundraising idea that become a trademark Torch Run event worldwide. It requires officers to sit on a building for a period of time or even several days in an attempt to raise awareness and funds. The individual on the roof often will use a megaphone to attract attention and request that people give donations to additional volunteers standing at street level. Through effective interaction with the media, and counting on the charity and sympathy of the general public, thousands of dollars can be raised! For more information about Cops on Top click here.
