Police and Donuts

I was on a ride along with one of our local police officers recently. This led to a conversation with my daughter about policemen and donuts. What I have observed is that the police officers I know do like their sweets and food in general. But the whole donut and police officer relationship seems to have originated “back in the day” when the only place open 24 hours a day were donut shops. The shop had donuts as well as coffee which helped the guys stay awake on their shifts. Most donut shops were usually located in centralized areas, which made it an easy place to meet for briefings between Officers of different agencies or shifts. Finally, donuts have sugar and carbohydrates, which allow for quick energy. Donuts, coupled with the ever present cup of coffee, helped keep the officers awake and alert.
