Did you make it out to the Antioch Dunkin’ this morning? It’s always great to see the strong community support for the Antioch Police Department’s fundraising for the Special Olympics Illinois. Chief Guttschow tells me there was a constant stream of people stopping by to make donations all morning long! I can’t wait to see the final fundraising numbers for our department. Thanks again not only for your support of #CopOnARooftop but also for the constant support our community shows to the men and women who dedicate their lives to protect our community. Great job, APD!
