Cop prepares to head on top

Posted: Updated:

YAKIMA, Wash- A Yakima Police officer is getting ready to spend 32 hours on the roof of Top Foods grocery store.  This will be his eighth year in a row participating in the "cop-on-top" fundraiser benefiting Special Olympics of Yakima County.  YPD is asking you to come and donate whatever you can at the top foods on First Street between 10 am Tuesday and 6pm Wednesday.

"It's just the right thing to do, to come out and help those that might be less fortunate.  For law enforcement to marry that and it's been over 50 years we've been involved in this process. Yakima has come out in a big way every year", says Merryman. 

Over the years Lieutenant Merryman has camped out on the Top Foods roof rain or shine.
