Up on the Roof
The Cop on Top fundraising event has Pittsfield police camping out on Walmart's roof––December 3-4
Pittsfield Police Officer Darren Derby’s mission is to help those in need.
The 38-year-old New Ashford native’s willingness to assist others spans nearly two decades and began when he first volunteered at the Special Olympics Winter Games as a high-school student at Mount Greylock.
The Berkshire Law Enforcement Torch Run program, a fundraising and advocacy partnership between the police force and Special Olympics, raises more than $100,000 annually for athletes in Berkshire County.
This season’s Cop on Top event, held from December 3-4, 2016, has Derby and his colleagues camping out on the roof at Walmart in Pittsfield to raise awareness and money.
