Yep, cops really do eat donuts.
The men and women who uphold the laws in Brooklyn admit they indulge in the sweetest of sweet confections, despite an enduring of stereotype about police diets that could make any top cop feel like Chief Wiggum.
That means it’s not easy for officers to go unnoticed when stuffing their faces with fried dough — especially when they’re at DOUGH.
“Those are dangerous, the donuts at DOUGH,” said a cop working out of the the 88th Precinct stationhouse, which is located less than two blocks away from the chic donut place on Lafayette Avenue. “I was taking a bite out of a donut and someone pointed and said, ‘This is awesome — a cop is eating a donut!’ ”
But that doesn’t mean police haven’t found creative ways to enjoy the dessert — they just don’t do it in their blues.
“I wouldn’t go to Dunkin Donuts in uniform,” said one cop in the 88th Precinct. “I get in on the drive in though.”Reach reporter Eli Rosenberg at erosenberg
