The following is a press release from the South Windsor Police Department
Once again, South Windsor Police Agent Ron Littell will return to his rooftop perch for a great cause. He climbed atop the roof at in Ellington (398 Somers Rd/Route 83) at noon today and remain there until 3 p.m. on Saturday, Aug. 18.
The Harley Davidson dealership will be open until 5:30 pm tonight and from 8:30 a.m. until 3 p.m. on Saturday with special events all day Saturday.
Agt. Littell will enjoy his time up on the roof and would appreciate visitors! Please consider stopping by to offer support and perhaps make a donation.
We thank those who have made donations in the past, and appreciate all the support we get for this great cause.
The “Cop on Top” event is a fundraising effort conducted by Connecticut law enforcement units during a pre-determined weekend. To raise money for Special Olympics Connecticut (SOCT), law enforcement officers, local PD, correctional officers, state troopers, etc., collect donations from customers and the general public as they are perched on the rooftops of a local business. These law enforcement personnel “cannot” come off the roof for a certain number of hours/days or until the fundraising goal has been reached.
As “Guardians of the Olympic Flame”, Connecticut law enforcement is an integral part to the overall success and mission of the Special Olympics. The mission of Special Olympics is to provide year-round sports training and athletic competition in a variety of Olympic-type sports for children and adults with intellectual disabilities, giving them continuing opportunities to develop physical fitness, demonstrate courage, experience joy and participate in a sharing of gifts, skills and friendship with their families, other Special Olympics athletes and the community.

The South Windsor Police wish to thank the staff and management of T.S.I. Harley Davidson for hosting this event!
