America’s Police Force Runs on Dunkin’

The other day after getting my new camera bag at Calumet Photo, Dan and I stopped at Dunkin’ Donuts near Kendall Square. I got my iced coffee and he got his regular coffee. We split one of the giant new peanut butter cup cookies as well. Shortly after we finished paying, a pair of Cambridge police officers came in. I had to chuckle, given the stereotype of police and doughnut shops. It seemed funny but not that noteworthy. However, a few minutes later, another pair of Cambridge police officers came in, ordered, and sat down near the others. As if this wasn’t enough, another few minutes passed and a third pair of officers – this time, MIT police officers – came in. At this point, there were a total of 8 customers in the place and 6 of them were police. I know that stereotypes are often untrue and unfair, but evidently, the stereotypical police appetite for donuts is quite accurate.

Take home message: if there’s ever an emergency but you can’t get through to 911, call the nearest Dunkin’ Donuts and you’ll be all set.
