Greenville, S.C. (June 18, 2013) – Joe Mulnix, Chief of the Department of Public Safety (DPS) at Bob Jones University, joined other law enforcement agencies Friday for “Cops on Top of Doughnut Shops” to raise money for Special Olympics.

Mulnix, along with several BJU DPS officers, participated in the fundraiser at Krispy Kreme in Greenville. In addition to the representatives from the BJU DPS, law enforcement officers from Greenville City Police Department, Greenville County Sheriff’s Department and South Carolina Highway Patrol were on hand to raise money. This year’s effort raised nearly $20,000.

“We enjoyed participating with area law enforcement agencies to raise money for such a worthwhile cause.” said Chief Mulnix. “The event is a great way to raise funds and build friendships and camaraderie between law enforcement agencies.”

This effort, coupled with the Law Enforcement Torch Run held annually in May, serves as a major fundraising opportunity for Special Olympics in South Carolina.
