"Police officers need our support, they need everyone's support," said Chickie's & Pete's founder and chairman Pete Ciarrocchi.  "Officers need to know we have their backs and if something happens to them we will be there to support their families. We are proud to bring back this annual tradition - and hope to break a record this year! The generosity of our customers is astounding."

Last year, the program raised over $30,000 and this year the restaurant looks to break a record by aiming to raise over $40,000.
